HC Deb 05 June 1946 vol 423 cc336-7W
104. Major Symonds

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has any further statement to make on the discussions with the U.S. Government with regard to the enforcement in the U.S.A. of paternity orders made out in this country against former members of the U.S. forces.

Mr. Bevin

As has already been stated in reply to Questions by the hon. and gallant Member for Macclesfield (Air-Commodore Harvey) on 1st May and by tile hon. Member for Newton (Sir R. Young) on 8th May, the whole question of the maintenance of illegitimate children in this country of former members of the United States forces who have left this country is under discussion with officials of the United States Government. I am very anxious to be able to get this matter settled as soon as possible on satisfactory lines.
