HC Deb 16 October 1952 vol 505 c35W
64. Mr. Wellwood

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when an Order in Council will be made under Section 65 of the Reserve and Auxiliary Forces (Protection of Civil Interests) Act, 1951, extending the benefits of that Act to Service men from Northern Ireland and conferring on them the same protection as is given to their comrades from other parts of the United Kingdom.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I regret I cannot forecast when this will be ready, but it is in an advanced stage of drafting and the desirability of making the Order as early as possible is fully appreciated both by Her Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom and by the Government of Northern Ireland.
