asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whither he will consider reducing the amount of paper-work which has to be carried out by persons desiring to make business visits to the Channel Islands, having regard to the waste of time and money involved under present arrangements, especially where a stay of only a couple of days is involved.
:I am always anxious to avoid unnecessary work, both for members of the public and for my Department. The object of the present formalities for visits to the Channel Islands is to ensure that accommodation is available for the visitor. They are not unduly onerous or elaborate, but if my hon. Friend has any suggestions to make I will gladly consider them.
