§ 66. Vice-Admiral TAYLOR
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the large number of unemployed in this country, he will consider the imposition of a poll tax on all aliens not owning their own business or employing labour?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
No, Sir. There are many objections to the imposition of such a tax, and in any case I do not think it would be a suitable instrument for effecting the object which my hon. and gallant Friend has in view.
§ Vice-Admiral TAYLOR
Is it not a fact that there are a great number of men unemployed owing to their jobs being taken by aliens?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
My hon. and gallant Friend is no doubt aware that the entry of aliens into the country is very carefully restricted.
