HC Deb 13 February 1969 vol 777 c351W
19. Mr. Deedes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consult with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office about the machinery for dealing with British passport holders in East Africa, particularly those whose passports become due for renewal.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

I am not sure what difficulty the right hon. Member has in mind. Questions concerning the issue or renewal of passports are for my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.

62. Mr. Gurden

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Kenyan Asians he will permit to enter Great Britain during the next six months.

Mr. Callaghan

The issue of vouchers for United Kingdom passport holders in East Africa is taking place at the rate of 1,500 per annum.

As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister informed the House on 21st January, we are ready to undertake bilateral discussions with the Governments most closely concerned.
