asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that His Majesty's Consul-General in Amsterdam has refused to issue a British passport to Mr. M. H. de Wildt, who is a British subject and who is ill at Groningen; and what steps he will take to see that this man has a British passport, so that he can return to Britain for treatment.
