HC Deb 27 February 1919 vol 112 c1946
44. Lieutenant-Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL

asked the Home Secretary whether Article 22c of, and the fifth and sixth Schedules to, the Aliens Restriction Order prohibiting the employment of aliens in certain trades, industries, and occupations has recently been repealed; if so, will he state on whose advice this action was taken; if the policy adopted in this matter is intended to facilitate the finding of employment for British subjects who have become, or are likely to become, unemployed owing to the cessation of hostilities; and if he will undertake that no further sections of the Aliens Order shall be repealed until the House has had an opportunity of discussing the whole subject and the policy involved?


I explained this matter in an answer to similar questions by the hon. Members for York and Ealing on the 18th of this month, and do not think there is anything I can add.
