HC Deb 02 December 1920 vol 135 c1443
76. Mr. SUGDEN

asked the Homo Secretary what steps he is immediately prepared to take to check the large numbers of undesirable aliens who are now entering this country, handicapping the limited employment available and spreading revolutionary propaganda amongst the workers in the country?


It is not the fact that large numbers of undesirable aliens are now entering the country. The provisions of the Alien Order are directed to the exclusion of undesirable aliens from the United Kingdom, and they are, I believe, effective.


Does the right hon. Gentleman take cognisance of the trade union figures in respect to this matter and bearing upon his question?


I take notice of any information given to them. I cannot pledge myself that no single undesirable man has been admitted; but, of course, I would welcome any information.
