§ 41. Colonel Wedgwood
asked the Home Secretary what steps are now being taken to prevent Irish citizens coming to this country in search of constructive or destructive work?
§ Sir J. Anderson
Subject to compliance with the requirement that every passenger must land at an approved port and be in possession of a passport or document of identity, there is no restriction on the entry of any British subject into this country for the purpose of seeking employment. A close watch is kept however, to prevent the entry of any person who has been expelled or can be prohibited from entering under the Preven- 810 tion of Violence (Temporary Provisions) Act, 1939.
§ Colonel Wedgwood
How can the right hon. Gentleman distinguish between Irish citizens as to whether they are coming here for constructive or destructive work?
