§ 10. Mr. Trotter
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will in future maintain records of the number of passports issued by consulates in each country to those claiming to have lost their original passport; and why this is not at present done.
§ Mr. Rowlands
No. I am not satisfied that the usefulness of such records justifies the labour and expense of collecting and collating the relevant informtaion.
