§ 54. Sir C. YATE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many persons have been arrested, prosecuted, or, if aliens, deported during the past year for seditious or revolutionary acts or speeches?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
I cannot give exact figures, but more than 30 persons have been proceeded against for speeches inciting to violence, either by the Director of Public Prosecutions or by the police acting on his advice. There is another question on the Paper dealing with the subject of deportations.
