HC Deb 10 March 1989 vol 148 cc695-6W
Mr. Steen

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to provide passports for Mrs Penelope Eve Brooke, née Butler, born 6 July 1942, and her son James Richard Henry Ormonde Brooke, born 10 November 1972, applications for which were sent to the Passport Office on 6 November 1987 and 13 December 1987 by recorded delivery.

Mr. Renton

The passports are being sent by registered post today. The application form for Mrs. Brooke's son was not fully completed, and although a second partly completed application was subsequently provided, some queries remained, about which the Passport Office wrote to Mrs. Brooke on 31 January 1988. I very much regret that the applications were not dealt with after she had replied to that letter.
