Persons who have come to Great Britain from any part of Ireland since the outbreak of war for the purpose of engaging in temporary war work can obtain exit permits to enable them to visit their homes or friends in Ireland not more than twice during a period of 12 months, but this concession does not apply to persons who came here before the war, and I regret that I cannot see my way to extend it to them?
