HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 cc159-60

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been called to the case of two stowaways, Henrick Garbe and Henrick Virmer, who were shipped at Antwerp on the Red Star Liner "Zealand," taken to New York, and, not being allowed by the authorities to land there, were brought back and put on shore at Dover, where they were sentenced to three weeks hard labour; and whether in view of his power under the Aliens Act, he will have them deported to Antwerp.


The first part of this Question states the facts of the case correctly: but I have no such power under the Aliens Act as is suggested in the last part. My power of making an Expulsion Order in such a case depends upon the issue by the convicting Court of a certificate recommending expulsion. No such certificate was given in this case.
