HC Deb 11 November 1941 vol 374 c2098W
Dr. Little

asked the Home Secretary whether, in addition to granting permits to teachers from Northern Ireland in Britain for the summer holidays, he will give them the choice of visiting their friends in Northern Ireland either for the Christmas or Easter holidays, and grant them travel permits for the holiday period so chosen?

Mr. H. Morrison

Persons who have homes in Northern Ireland are granted exit permits to enable them to travel to Northern Ireland not more than once in any period of six months. School teachers who visit their homes in Northern Ireland during the summer holidays will not qualify for the grant of exit permits to travel to Northern Ireland for Christmas, and I regret that I should not feel justified in making a concession in favour of one section of the community by allowing school teachers to make an additional journey to Northern Ireland within the six-month period.
