HC Deb 14 August 1916 vol 85 c1430W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether Irish migratory labourers or other Irishmen who enlist in England are allowed to join Irish regiments if they so desire?


Yes, Sir. Instructions have been issued that any man of Irish nationality who wishes to join an Irish regiment is to be sent, if passed fit for general service, to Ireland to the depot of the regiment he wishes to join.
