§ MR. STUART SAMUEL (Tower Hamlets, Whitechapel)
I beg to ask the 1026 Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the representatives of the public Press are admitted to attend the proceedings of the Alien Immigration Boards; and, if not, whether he will take steps to assure such admission if desired.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
I believe that in most cases, if not in all, the representatives of the public Press have not been admitted to attend the proceedings of the Immigration Boards. This is a matter which, with other points of procedure as settled by my predecessor, has been left by the regulations to the discretion of the Boards. It is engaging my attention.
