HC Deb 10 March 1976 vol 907 cc272-3W
35. Mr. Arnold Shaw

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether there has been any progress in securing international support for equality of usage of a family passport by the wife as well as the husband.

Mr. Rowlands

No. As our consultations with foreign Governments have shown, it is still generally accepted internationally that only the spouse, in whose name the family passport is issued, may use it when travelling alone.
