asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why his Department stated in a letter dated 25th May, reference CRI 270/1/4, that a United States service man, against whom a paternity claim was pending, was still in this country, although his Department had been informed by the Foreign Office on 13th April that this man had left for the United States, and that the case was to be dealt with by the Foreign Office.

I regret that by an unfortunate mistake a telephone message from the Foreign Office conveying the information in question was not conveyed to the officer dealing with this case.
