HC Deb 30 April 1947 vol 436 c226W
29. Mr. Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the legal authority, and by whom is it exercised, requiring a British subject in Malta who desires to leave the Colony to pay a deposit of£10.

Mr. Creech Jones

I understand that this practice, which was introduced as an administrative measure in 1931, is no longer being insisted upon. The responsible authority has been the Malta Emigration Department.
