HC Deb 20 January 1949 vol 460 cc57-8W
Mr. Piratin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department for how long His Majesty's Government intend to continue in force the United States (Visiting Forces) Act, 1942.

Mr. Ede

In view of the number of members of the United States Forces who are in this country His Majesty's Government do not think that the time is appropriate for the repeal of this Act.
