HC Deb 14 May 1957 vol 570 c18W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations on what grounds a passport has been refused to Mr. Gilbert Sekhabi to enable him to travel to the United States of America to study veterinary medicine in view of the fact that he was born in Basutoland, has produced documents to prove his identity, and his chief has endorsed his claim to be Basuto.

Mr. Alport

I have made inquiries about allegations regarding Mr. Sekhabi's application for a passport, which were sent to me earlier by the hon. Member, and I will let him know the result as soon as possible.
