HC Deb 10 October 1945 vol 414 cc260-1W
Colonel Erroll

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why intending travellers to Northern Ireland are still required to complete Form P, Application for grant of travel permit card or exit permit; and if exit permits cannot be entirely dispensed with, whether the application form will be simplified.

Mr. Ede

Form P was originally intended as a combined form on which applications could be made for a travel permit card or exit permit or both. Exit permits for Ireland were abolished shortly after VE Day, but existing stocks of Form P continued to be used up pending the introduction of a simplified form which is now in use. The new form asks for only those particulars necessary for the issue of a travel identity card, by which name the old travel permit card will henceforth be known.
