40. Sir F. HALL
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state whether a permit to enter Great Britain has been issued to Herr Eberlein subsequent to the conviction and recommendation for deportation of Isadore Dreazon; and if he will say what reasons were assigned by Eberlein for wishing to come to this country and for what period he has been given permission to reside here?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Short)
Eberlein was given leave to land at Harwich on the 27th May. This was subsequent to the conviction of Dreazon. I am informed that he stated that he was coming to London on a four or five days' visit. He left the country before the end of May.
41. Sir F. HALL
asked the Home Secretary whether an order has been made for the deportation of Isadore Dreazon, who was convicted at Manchester early in May for failing to 32 register as an alien and sentenced to a month's imprisonment; whether the order has been carried out; and if he will state to what country Dreazon has been sent?
Sir F. HALL
Seeing that the sentence of a month's imprisonment was passed more than a month ago and that an order was made for his deportation, may I ask why that order has not been carried out?
§ Mr. SHORT
A deportation order has been issued and inquiries are being made. [HON. MEMBERS: "Why inquiries?"] When the inquiries are completed, we shall be in a better position to give the House information. I would ask my hon. and gallant Friend not to press me to say more upon this matter at present.
Sir F. HALL
Will it be satisfactory to the hon. Gentleman if I put down another question in a week's time?
