CAPTAIN FABER (Hants, Andover)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is able to state how many crimes were committed by aliens in London during 1906.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
It is impossible to say how many crimes have been committed by aliens, in London or elsewhere; but the hon. Member will find in the Answer which I gave to the hon. Member for West Down, on March 26th,† a statement covering the last five years for which figures are available of the number of persons received into London prisons on conviction, summary or other, who, according to their own statements, were born in foreign countries.
