§ Mr. Hely-Hutchinson
asked the Home Secretary whether the ban on visitors is intended to include or to exclude Hastings; and, if the latter, will he make it clear that intending visitors can, under present circumstances, go to Hastings.
§ Mr. H. Morrison
The area subject to the visitors' ban in Kent and Sussex does not include Hastings. Hastings is, however, within a regulated area; and, as I explained in the statement which I made on 30th March, restrictions may be imposed for military purposes without warning at any place within a regulated area, and any person intending to visit a place in such an area would be well advised to ascertain beforehand from his local contacts whether any particular restrictions are in force at the time in the locality.
