HC Deb 07 June 1921 vol 142 cc1682-3
67. Mr. MOSLEY

asked the Chief Secretary whether confidential documents or orders are copied and filed in Dublin Castle by female clerks; whether any persons thus employed are recruited in Ireland; and what precautions are taken to ensure that they can be entrusted with work of a highly secret nature, involving the safety of members of the Crown forces?


It is not desirable for obvious reasons that I should disclose any information as to the officials by whom confidential documents in Dublin Castle are handled. The hon. Member may rest assured, however, that every precaution is taken to ensure that such documents do not pass into the hands of any person who is not fully trustworthy.
