§ 23. Sir C. YATE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people are known to be working for revolution in this country; how many of these have been arrested, convicted, or deported since November last; and what steps are to be taken with those still at large?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
It is undesirable that I should indicate the figures referred to in the first part of the question, but a number of persons of revolutionary tendencies have, during the last six months, been convicted or bound 2365 over to keep the peace in connection with disturbances or incitements to violence, and I am sure that the proper authorities are alive to the necessity of watching such persons and dealing with infractions of the law.
