HC Deb 02 March 1944 vol 397 cc1559-60
25. Dr Little

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will issue instructions to passport officials to give special consideration to doctors and nurses crossing to and from Northern Ireland, with a view to the speedy issue of their travel permits.

Mr. H. Morrison

I am aware of no grounds for any complaint of delay in granting exit permits to doctors and nurses who qualify for a permit under the travel regulations.

Dr. Little

Will the right hon. Gentleman inquire into the serious complaints about the delays made in the case of doctors who are in a position to cross the Channel, but cannot get permits? Will he look into it?

Mr. Morrison

If the hon. Member will let me have particulars, I will certainly do my best to look into it.
