HC Deb 16 March 1927 vol 203 c2011
71. The Marquess of TITCHFIELD

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people convicted of spreading revolutionary propaganda have been deported since the end of the coal dispute; and how much financial support for their propaganda has been sent to this country during the same period?


Since the 19th December last, i.e., the date of the withdrawal of the Emergency Regulations which were rendered necessary by the coal stoppage, no alien has been reported to my right hon. Friend as having been convicted of spreading revolutionary propaganda. The remainder of the question does not, therefore, arise.

Marquess of TITCHFIELD

Have no aliens been deported during that period?


Yes. During the last 12 weeks no fewer than 40 undesirable aliens have been deported from this country, but they did not come under this particular category of people who have been convicted of spreading revolutionary propaganda.


Can the hon. and gallant Gentleman say how many more ought to have been deported?
