HC Deb 18 October 1945 vol 414 c1352
23. Lieut.-Colonel Lindsay

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why the Immigration Office has ordered a woman, particulars of whom have been sent to him, domiciled in Northern Ireland, to leave the United Kingdom immediately, where she has four sons and a daughter resident and in which her husband has been authorised to accept employment.

Mr. Ede

The hon. and gallant Member appears to have been misinformed as to this lady's domicile, which is Eire and not Northern Ireland. She was allowed to come here for a limited period for employment, which she has now given up, and seeks to settle here with members of her family. I have carefully considered the circumstances of the case, and have come to the conclusion that as the permitted stay of this lady has now expired, she must comply with the conditions on which she was allowed to come here, and must return to her husband and four young children in Eire.
