HC Deb 24 March 1948 vol 448 cc336-7W
Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether parents desiring to make a short visit to the graves of ex-Service men buried in Belgium are permitted, on compassionate grounds, to take the small amount of currency necessary to cover their expenses; and what the arrangements are and the amount allowed.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes. Currency up to the equivalent of £10 per person is allowed for this purpose. Application should be made in the normal way through the parents' own bankers to the Bank of England.
