HC Deb 16 December 1929 vol 233 c972
70. Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Home Secretary the countries of origin of the several alien murderers executed in England and Wales during the last 20 years?


The information asked for is not available and could not be obtained without an unjustifiable expenditure of time and trouble. In any event I do not think that the publication of the information, if it could be obtained, would be desirable.

Viscountess ASTOR

As I cannot get the information, will the hon. Gentleman tell me later why he thinks that it would not be useful to give it?
