§ MR. FELL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many cases have arisen under the Aliens Act where certificates have been issued recommending that certain criminal aliens should be deported; and how many of such aliens have in fact been deported from this country under the provisions of the Act.
§ *MR. GLADSTONE
I have received, up to the present time, 246 certificates given by Courts under Section 3 of the Aliens Act; and in 105 cases I have made expulsion orders. In many cases the time has not arrived for making the Orders, as the aliens are serving sentences of imprisonment of various lengths—up to fifteen years.
