asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will make representations to the authorities in Jamaica with a view to visitors from the United Kingdom to Jamaica being allowed the same privileges as United States citizens, who are required to fill up only a simple tourist landing card, whereas United Kingdom residents have to fill in both an embarkation card and an immigration card giving much more detailed information.

I have consulted the Governor of Jamaica on this subject, and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as I have received his reply.
