HC Deb 07 May 1959 vol 605 cc69-70W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he has granted permission to Mr. Maier, a Czechoslovak national, to say in this country for three months; and to what extent public funds will be used to meet the cost of this man's stay in this country.

Mr. R. A. Butler

There were no grounds on which I should have been justified in refusing Dr. Maier leave to land. As regards the second part of the Question, I have no reason to expect that he will need to be supported from public funds.
