61. Mr. R. McNEILL

asked the Home Secretary if he will state how many aliens and how many persons of hostile origin or association have respectively been interned or repatriated since the 1st of August; and how many of each class remain at large in the United Kingdom?


Three thousand alien enemies have been interned and 2,600 (including children) have been repatriated since 1st August, making the total now interned 32,400, and the total repatriated since the 14th May 8,900. In addition, orders have been made under Regulation 14B in about sixty cases.

The number of exemptions from internment granted is 7,233, of whom 2,800 are Germans. The number of females (together with some males not of military age) who have been or will be exempted from repatriation is about 16,000.
