HC Deb 23 February 1949 vol 461 c1839
11. Mr. Beswick

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if his regulations permit Southern Irishmen resident in this country to be held eligible for service in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve.

Mr. W. Edwards

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Tiffany

Is my hon. Friend aware that Southern Irishmen resident in this country have been denied entry to the Service on the ground that they were Southern Irishmen?

Mr. Edwards

I am not aware of that, but if my hon. Friend gives me any details I shall be glad to look into them.

Sir Ralph Glyn

Can the Civil Lord say whether this would involve amendment of the Foreign Enlistment Order?

Mr. Edwards

No, Sir.
