HC Deb 10 July 1941 vol 373 c307
43. Dr. Little

asked the Minister of Information whether, as the representatives of enemy countries find sanctuary in Eire, and, in order to avoid the leakage of information useful to our enemies, he will at once make arrangements for the censorship of all letters passing both ways between Northern Ireland and Eire?

Mr. Nicolson

This is a matter to which much attention has been given and the question of what further precautions are practicable and expedient is one on which my right hon. Friend is in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Home Department.

Dr. Little

Is the Minister aware that there is a strong feeling in Northern Ireland that this matter is a pressing one and should receive immediate attention, and will the earliest possible decision be taken on it?

Mr. Nicolson
