HC Deb 07 March 1922 vol 151 c1065
43. Mr. HALLS

asked the Home Secretary whether he has made any and, if so, what orders under Article 14 of the Aliens Order, 1920, giving exemption from registration to persons of alien origin; and how many persons are affected thereby?


I have granted exemption from registration to the following classes of aliens:

  1. (1) Persons locally naturalised as British subjects in any British Possession.
  2. (2) Foreign Consular officers who are Consuls de Carrière.
  3. (3) Subjects of native States in India; and
  4. (4) Wives of the men falling in the above three classes.
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.

I cannot say exactly how many persons are covered by these exemptions.
