HC Deb 15 March 1906 vol 153 cc1410-1

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether it is proposed that foreign criminals convicted of felony in this country shall immediately after conviction be expelled from this country, or whether they shall become a public charge by reason of a long term of imprisonment in this country.


I have already answered this Question in the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby, on the 6th of this month.† If the hon. Member's suggestion were adopted, this country would become the happy hunting ground for all foreign criminals.
