§ 120. Mr. Marlowe
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that travel permit No. 25896, valid for six months, was issued to Fraulein S. Wibbelhoff at Dusseldorf in order that she might stay with her sister, who is British by marriage, at Brighton; why the permit has been overstamped on arrival as valid for two months only; and why, in a letter to her solicitors dated 27th November, reference W 28480, he has refused to extend this visit beyond 30th December next.
The six months' validity of the travel permit refers, not to the length of stay in this country, but to the period within which the permit must be used. In her application for a visa, Fraulein Wibbelhoff said that she wished to pay a visit of two or three months, and the case has been dealt with throughout on the footing of a short visit. However, I have now decided that she may prolong her stay till the end of February.
