HC Deb 10 April 1905 vol 144 c1018
MR. BRIGHT (Shropshire, Oswestry)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet made any estimate of the probable cost to the Exchequer of the proposed Aliens Bill, and what the cost of administering it will be.


An estimate is in course of preparation, but it would be premature to make any statement on the subject at present. I will be ready to state the figures during the debate on the Aliens Bill.
