HC Deb 26 April 1971 vol 816 c12W
46. Mr. Soref

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on why a ban has been imposed on Lady Crawford, wife of Sir Frederick Crawford, former Governor of Uganda, from visiting Sunderland for a family ship-launching.

Sir Alec Douglas-Home

Lady Crawford is subject to travel restrictions imposed in 1968 to meet obligations under a Mandatory Security Council Resolution. We have agreed to Lady Crawford's request to come to this country for specialist medical treatment and for compassionate family reasons.
