HC Deb 13 May 1907 vol 174 c634

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if his attention has been called to the case under the Aliens Act, on the 8th instant, of the German who was expelled from this country under a magistrate's order, but who stated at the Thames police court that he had not been allowed to remain in Germany; and whether he will take an early oportunity of amending the Act in the direction of keeping objectionable characters and criminals out of the country.


I am aware of the case referred to. If, as in this instance, an alien criminal who has been expelled from this country is imprisoned as soon as he is found here again, that seems to me to be the best protection that we can secure.
