HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 c805W

asked the Secretary for Scotland if he is aware that restrictions are still placed in the way of persons travelling North; and if he will ascertain what Department is responsible for the continuance of permits and endeavour to get them removed?


I have been asked to reply to this question. The only restrictions now in force in Scotland are in regard to the Orkneys. They are enforced under Regulation 14a of the Defence of the Realm Regulations. It is considered most undesirable to remove these restrictions at present.
