HC Deb 12 March 1941 vol 369 c1302W
Dr. Little

asked the Home Secretary whether, in view of the hardship incurred by teachers from Northern Ireland having to remain in Britain during the holidays, he will arrange to grant travel permits to these teachers to enable them to spend the Easter, Mid-summer and Christmas holidays at home with their friends in Ulster?

Mr. Peake

The restrictions on travel between this country and Ireland were relaxed last November to enable persons to visit their homes in either country not more than once in any period of six months. My right hon. Friend regrets that he could not justify granting to school teachers special privileges which it is not practicable to grant to other classes of people.
