§ Mr. Michael Cocks
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what advice is given by his Department when issuing a passport regarding the desirability of providing insurance cover against unforeseen medical expenses incurred whilst abroad.413W
§ Mr. Kershaw
With each passport issued, renewed or serviced in any other way, the Passport Office encloses a copy of the Essential Information booklet which includes strong and detailed advice to the traveller to take out adequate insurance cover against medical or other expenses which might be incurred abroad. I am arranging for copies of this booklet to be made available in the Library of the House.
