    Preposition after the verb issue

    He was issued (with) a passport.

    Does the verb issue need a preposition here?

    No. In fact, any preposition I can think of would be incorrect.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Preposition after the verb issue

    I think it sounds okay with with (Collins agrees) but it sounds slightly better to my ear with no preposition. I don't see why a preposition is needed.

    I prefer it with 'with'.

    I am used to hearing and using it with "with" but it's not incorrect without.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
