§ 38. Mr. D. Foot
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Dr. Franz Krahl was not permitted to remain in this country.
§ Mr. Renton
Any East German temporarily in this country is expected to have a valid travel document, and the period of this document's validity is taken into account in granting the holder leave to land and in determining any subsequent extensions of his permitted stay. The validity of Dr. Krahl's temporary travel document expired on 10th January and, as he was unable to obtain its renewal, my right hon. Friend was not prepared to extend Dr. Krahl's permitted stay beyond that date.
