21. Captain Duncan
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what conditions Sir Walter Citrine was granted an exit permit to visit Greece.
§ Mr. H. Morrison
It is not the general practice to attach conditions to the grant of exit permits, and no conditions were attached in this case.
In cases like this where an important delegation makes a visit abroad, and there is likely to be an important report, will the Minister, in future, consider attaching a condition to the permit that a copy of the report should be submitted to him, so that Members of Parliament can receive copies? At present, it is impossible officially to obtain a copy of Sir Walter Citrine's report.
§ Mr. Morrison
I will consider that. It would however, be very unusual, and would possibly elevate delegations into a rather too official position. But if my hon. and gallant Friend applies to the Trades Union Congress, I am sure that they will consider whether they can supply him with a copy of the report.
§ Commander Sir Archibald Southby
Is it in order for Members of Parliament, other than those sitting on the other side of the House, to apply to Transport House for a copy?
