1. Yes.

3. The fee on a passport has been increased from $2 to $5, but a passport may include more than one person.

4. Representations were made to the British government asking that Canadians visiting Great Britain might be relieved of the obligation to carry passports, but it was pointed out in reply that if Canadians did not cany passports they would find themselves subject to more inconvenience at the port of arrival than they now experience in obtaining passports at the outset, owing to arrangements

made for controlling the entry of aliens, under which evidence of nationality has to be furnished by those entering the United Kingdom, experience having shown the carrying of a passport to be essential; and His Majesty's government was of opinion that it would not be either to the general advantage or in the interests of the passengers themselves to dispense with the requirements of passports.
