HC Deb 11 November 1954 vol 532 c157W
84. Mr. Mitchison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress has been made with the proposed arrangements to persuade the members of visiting forces who have returned to their own country to comply with affiliation orders; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Turton

The United States Service authorities, like our own, are unable to take disciplinary action for failure to comply with foreign affiliation orders. The discussions mentioned by my right hon. Friend the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs in the debate on 19th March have made it clear that there is at present no prospect of amendment to the United States Service statutes in this respect.
