HC Deb 28 June 1944 vol 401 c702
15. Dr. Little

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the criticism by one of the Ulster resident magistrates regarding the employment of a man at an air base in Northern Ireland who had no residence permit, he will, in the interests of public security, give instructions that in future no one is to be employed at any air base in Northern Ireland until he produces his residence permit and identity card.

Sir A. Sinclair

Civilians employed at R.A.F. Stations in Northern Ireland are required to hold a National Registration identity card and, where applicable, a residence permit.

Dr. Little

I sent my right hon. Friend a copy of the remarks of the resident magistrate, which caused a sensation in Ulster and were brought to my notice and the notice of the Air Ministry. There never was anything like it said before, and I would like to ask my right hon. Friend if he will make an inquiry into the whole thing and issue regulations.
