HC Deb 13 March 1957 vol 566 c182W
Mr. Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will look into the refusal of a passport to Miss Mavis Rose Evans, a dressmaker, of Hanover, Jamaica, who wishes to travel to Britain to train as a nurse, who has never belonged to any political party yet who was told she was a security risk because she had assisted a candidate whom she had known since her schooldays in his election campaign to the House of Representatives in 1954; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

On the advice of his Executive Council, the Governor of Jamaica issued a passport to Miss M. R. Evans on 28th January. In June, 1956, she had been refused one for security reasons, but the Governor of Jamaica tells me that the facts of this are not altogether as given in the hon. Member's Question.
