HC Deb 26 June 1919 vol 117 c316
28. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Home Secretary if he can state the number of coloured labourers there were in the United Kingdom at the time of the national registration and the approximate number at present in the United Kingdom; and how many of them are British subjects?


The statistics obtained under the National Registration Scheme do not distinguish between white and coloured labourers, and I regret, therefore, that the figures asked for by the hon. Member are not available. Statistics are, however, now being collected at the principal centres where there is a large coloured population.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Will the House be informed what are the numbers?


As soon as we know.
