§ Mr. Barnett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Miss Vivian Gemot of the Argentine, at present staying in Heywood, has not had her passport returned and a decision given on her request, made in December, 1968, to be allowed to extend her stay in Great Britain.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
Miss Gemot's permitted stay does not expire until 18th October, 1969, and no need to extend her stay has arisen. I much regret the delay in dealing with her application for permission to take employment. Her passport was returned to her on 27th February.
