HC Deb 01 February 1945 vol 407 cc1636-7W
Dr. Little

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will adopt stronger measures to put down smuggling across the border between Northern Ireland and Eire; and if he will make it impossible for children to be utilised by smugglers as their agents.

Sir J. Anderson

The strongest measures practicable are already taken to deal with smuggling across the Northern Ireland land boundary. The most effective means of preventing the use of children in smuggling is to trace the adults who use them and to take appropriate action against the adults. This is done whenever possible, with, I believe, satisfactory results, but the number of such cases is not large.
