§ Mr. Byers
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that Miss Anne Mary Alpers, 22a Krefeld Traar, Hans Kemmerhof, British Zone, Germany, has been waiting for over three months for a reply to her application for a passport, which was made to the Passport Control Office, Room 222, York House, Berlin; and what steps he proposes to take to expedite the working of this office and to arrange for the issue of this particular passport.
§ Mr. Ede
The Passport Control Officer, Berlin, has no trace of any application from a Miss Anne Mary Alpers but a Miss Anna Louise Albers applied to the Headquarters, Military Governor, Krefeld, for an exit permit for the purpose of marriage62W to a resident in the United Kingdom. This exit permit was submitted on 28th February to the Passport Control Officer to consider whether a visa for the United Kingdom could be granted. The Passport Control Officer is still awaiting her parents' consent to her marriage, which is required as she is a minor.
