HC Deb 07 March 1946 vol 420 c493
41. Dr. Little

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now take steps to ensure that the remaining restrictions on travel between Great Britain and Northern Ireland are entirely removed, and the freedom of travel restored between Northern Ireland and other parts of the United Kingdom.

Mr. Ede

The sooner restrictions of this kind can be relaxed or abandoned the better pleased we all shall be, but as the hon. Member knows there are still reasons for the modified form of control now in operation.

Dr. Little

Can the right hon. Gentleman give an approximate date when these tiresome regulations will come to an end, as that would be cheering news to the public?

Mr. Ede

I hesitate to prophesy.
