§ 26. Mr. DOUGLAS HACKING
asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider the possibility in future Home Office Returns of distinguishing between those visitors from overseas who enter this country for the purpose of spending their holidays here and those who come for other purposes?
§ Mr. CLYNES
I think that my previous reply has perhaps been misunderstood. The returns already contain
|NUMBER of BOYS and GIRLS sent by Order of Court who were in Home Office Schools and Borstal Institutions on 31st December in each year.|
|Year.||Borstal Institutions.||Reformatories.||Industrial Schools.||Day Industrial Schools.|
§ separate headings for "Business visitors" and for "Visitors on holiday, tourists, etc." I am advised that it would not be practicable to sub-divide the latter heading, but I think the right hon. Gentleman may accept the figures given under that heading as fairly representing, for practical purposes, the number of aliens coining to this country on holiday.
