§ 41. Mr. HACKING
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of aliens of Russian nationality who have been recommended by the courts for deportation and the number actually deported during the past six months?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Clynes)
During the six months commencing on 1st May, 1930, 12 persons described as Russians were recommended for deportation. In one case I decided, in view of all the circumstances, not to order deportation, three are still serving their sentences, one has been deported to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic, one will shortly be deported to Poland to which country he belongs, in two cases investigation failed to establish Soviet Russian or any alien nationality, and the remaining four cases are still under investigation.
§ 48. Mr. HACKING
asked the Home Secretary in how many cases Russian cbitizens resident in this country, who have been recalled to Russia but refused to comply with their orders, have given as the reason the risk to life involved by such return?
§ Mr. HACKING
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the thirteen are in this country, and, if so, are they a charge on the community or are they self-supporting?
§ Mr. CLYNES
In the circumstances, no action has been taken to turn them out of the country. As to the individual condition of each one, I have no information.
