§ Lord John Hope
asked the President of the Board of Trade why, on 9th May, 1947, permission was refused Mr. A. Jones, of A. Jones and Son, to make a business visit to Germany; and why Mr. Jones was given no reason for this refusal.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Mr. Jones' original application was refused because it did not appear that his visit was likely to lead to business. On receipt of further information the decision was reconsidered and the visit approved. Mr. Jones was so informed on 10th June.
