Seminarian's visa delayed

FOLLOWING representations by the Ladyeholme organisation and queries from national newspapers, the Home Office after several months' delay has given permission for a student priest, Peter Cheung of Propaganda Fide College, Rome, to enter Britain.

Mr. Cheung, who is from Hong. Kong, will help three other students from the college with "general dogsbodying''. Ladyeholme, headed by Mif's Edith Urch, helps distressed families and others with special difficulties to start a new life.

Mr. Cheung's colleagues, two Australians and a South African, encountered no difficulty in entering Britain and have already started work at Ladyeholme. Application for his visa was first made in May.

After the delay Miss Urch contacted the British Consulate in Paris where Mr. Cheung is working, who telexed the Home Office for further information.

After some ten days there was no reply and Ladyeholme's public relations officer, Mr. Dillon McCarthy, a freelance

journalist, contacted the national newspapers before

making further enquiries at the Home Office which on Tuesday confirmed that Mr. Cheung's visa would be granted.
