§ 41. Viscount CURZON
asked the Home Secretary whether any cases have been brought to his notice of girls being found on board foreign ships in British ports for immoral purposes; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take to deal with it?
§ Mr. SHORTT
Two cases of women going on board foreign ships for immoral purposes have been brought to my notice. I am making inquiry with regard to these cases, but, except where there is a dock or harbour byelaw dealing with the matter, the police have no power to deny women access to ships.
§ Viscount CURZON
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of taking powers in the future?
