32. Colonel FABER
asked the Home Secretary whether he has any information showing that M. Kamaneff, who is reported to be on his way to this country from 258 Stockholm, is the same man who was named in the order to the German Imperial banks; if so, whether he has been in German pay; and whether he is to be allowed to be at large in this country?
§ 43. Mr. BILLING
asked the Home Secretary whether, having regard to the fact that M. Litvinoff has caused revolutionary literature to be distributed among munition workers in this country, more especially in the Woolwich Arsenal, he will now have this gentleman deported as an undesirable alien?
§ Sir G. CAVE
These matters are receiving the attention of His Majesty's Government, but I do not consider it desirable to make any statement at present.
§ Mr. LEES-SMITH
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the letter on which these statements are based have now been proved to be a forgery?
§ Sir G. CAVE
I regret that it is not possible to give the figures desired. As regards the second paragraph, a large number of the prisoners are employed on useful work, either in the camps or outside, and the number so employed is constantly being increased.
§ Mr. BILLING
Having regard to the fact that, according to this question, 29,000 aliens are eating the food of this country, is it not in the public interest to deport them?
