Entry of dwelling house to make arrest.

3.—In any case where a responsible officer of the Military Forces of Saorstát Eireann has reasonable ground for anticipating that it will be necessary to enter a dwelling-house for the purpose of effecting an arrest, to be made by him under this Act, it shall be the duty of such officer, wherever reasonably practicable, to arrange that an officer of the Dublin Metropolitan Police or the Gárda Síochána is present at such entry, and the Minister for Defence and the Minister for Home Affairs shall make such arrangements as may be necessary or desirable for this purpose.
