§ Mr. Henry Clark
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what provision has been made for the swift supply of additional foreign currency to British subjects on holiday in non-sterling countries in the event of emergencies, accidents, and sickness; and what steps have been taken to inform tourists of these provisions.
§ Mr. MacDermot
As is stated in the Notice to Travellers, which should be handed out by banks and travel agents when issuing foreign exchange for travel, travellers already abroad who require additional funds in an emergency should immediately communicate with their United Kingdom bankers. Such funds can be made available very quickly.
