HC Deb 11 April 1918 vol 104 c1618
22. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether schoolgirls living in Clare are required to have passports if they leave the county?


I cannot ascertain that any application for a permit for a schoolgirl has been made. My hon. and learned Friend the Solicitor-General for Ireland stated on the 21st March that under the terms of the notice issued by the competent military authority declaring county Clare a special military area no permission to enter the county is necessary in the case of a female ordinarily resident therein. The military authorities inform me that permits have not been issued and have not been refused.


In view of that answer,, may I call attention to the fact that false statements are made from that bench?
