§ Mr. SHORTT
I have granted exemption from registration to the following classes of aliens:
In proper eases individual exemptions are granted to British-born women, alien by marriage, who are widowed, divorced, or otherwise permanently separated from their husbands, and to persons holding official positions, such as members of the Secretariat of the League of Nations.
- (1) Persons locally naturalised as British subjects in any British Possession.
- (2) Foreign Consular officers who are Consuls de Carrière.
- (3) Subjects of native States in India; and
- (4) Wives of the men falling in the above three classes.
I cannot say exactly how many persons are covered by these exemptions.
