HC Deb 20 March 1906 vol 154 c218

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the deaf and dumb alien, who was allowed to land because it was impossible to ascertain his country, or whether he was not a political refugee, is now in a workhouse; and, if so, what union is supporting him, and what steps he proposes to take in the matter.


I fear that I cannot identify the case to which the hon. Member refers. If it is the man whom I think, my information is that he is a Polish Jew, and the latest information was that he was wandering about the country.
