23. Mr. DOYLE
asked whether, and, if so, when, and under what restrictions, if any, late enemy aliens are to be allowed to enter this country; whether it is proposed to make any discrimination between German and other alien immigrants; what are the conditions now governing alien immigration from all countries; and whether the Aliens Restriction Act applies and will continue to apply, after the signing of Peace and after the ratification of the terms of Peace, respectively?
§ Mr. SHORTT
As the hon. Member is doubtless aware, an Aliens Restriction Bill is now before one of the Standing Committees of the House, and the conditions under which aliens will be admitted to the United Kingdom are at present under discussion. The Orders in Council made under the Aliens Restriction Act, 1914, will remain in force until the date to be fixed under the Termination of the Present War (Definition) Act.
