HC Deb 13 March 1941 vol 369 c1410
25. Mr. Wedgwood

asked the Home Secretary whether he will abolish altogether the curfew restrictions on those aliens who have already volunteered for, and are actively engaged in, the voluntary fire-watching and fighting scheme?

Mr. H. Morrison

I have no doubt that chief constables will grant exemptions from the curfew restrictions by means of an appropriate endorsement on an alien's police registration certificate to any alien who can show that he is engaged in the schemes referred to. This method is in my view preferable to a general order of exemption, since otherwise there would be no means of indentifying the aliens benefiting from the exemption.
