HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 c1568

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether there are any statistics in the possession of the Department showing the numericial proportion of the unskilled alien workers at present employed in Great Britain to the British unemployed; and, as most of these aliens come from countries much nearer than China, will he consider the advisability of following the South African precedent and restoring them to their respective domiciles of origin.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Gladstone.) The answer to both Questions is in the negative.
