asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the hon. Member for Northampton may expect an answer to his letter dated 19th May, 1947, addressed to the Passport Control Officer, British zone, Berlin, concerning an application for a visa made by Hildegard Kehrig, the fiancée of Mr. Raymond Spencer, 547, Wellingborough Road, Northampton; and when this visa will be granted.
As my hon. Friend was in formed in a letter of the 20th June, Miss Kehrig was instructed by the Passport Control Officer on 16th May to apply through the local German authorities for an exit permit, on production of which he will endorse a visa on it. The Passport Control Officer reports that he has no trace of the receipt of a letter of 19th May from my hon. Friend.
