HC Deb 16 January 1991 vol 183 c520W
25. Mr. Sayeed

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations he has received on the consular leaflet "Get It Right Before You Go".

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has received appreciative comments on its general travel advice leaflets, "Get It Right Before You Go".

The original leaflet, "Consular Assistance Abroad", explains what a consul can and cannot do for Britons in trouble abroad and is distributed mainly through travel agents. The new leaflet "A Checklist for Travellers" is distributed with British visitor's passports through post offices and concentrates on a few key messages including encouraging travellers to take out adequate insurance and to safeguard valuables.
