§ 35. Mr. D. G. SOMERVILLE
asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the number of aliens, by nationalities, who have been admitted to this country specifically to take up employment during the current year?
Figures for 1932 are published on page 29 of the Ministry of Labour report for that year. Figures for the current year are not yet available but will be published in due course in the Ministry of Labour report.
§ Mr. SOMERVILLE
Is my hon. Friend aware that there is a great deal of feeling now arising in this country, especially in London, as to the apparent increase in the number of aliens settling here, and will he give attention to the matter?
I can only say that when the figures are available for the complete year, which will be soon after the end of the year, they will be published.
