HC Deb 26 January 1956 vol 548 cc46-7W
70. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is now able to make a statement on the experiment undertaken by his Department whereby there would be a speeding up of passport formalities for British holidaymakers returning with their cars from the Continent to this country.

Major Lloyd-George

I have regretfully come to the conclusion that in view of the pressing need for economy in the use of staff I cannot undertake to arrange for immigration officers to travel on the cross-Channel car ferries as a regular procedure. I am writing to my hon. and gallant Friend to explain more fully the considerations involved.
