HC Deb 28 March 1938 vol 333 cc1632-3
65. Mr. Crowder

asked the Home Secretary whether he can give any estimate of the number of German subjects, other than tourists, at present living in Great Britain?

Mr. Lloyd

The number of Germans registered with the police is approximately 20,000, of whom about 11,000 are women.

Mr. Benn

Is it the case that these Germans are compelled to report to the German Consulate, and, if so, for what purpose?

Mr. Lloyd

I was not aware of that.

Sir Percy Harris

Does that figure of 20,000 include Austrians?

Mr. Lloyd

No, it does not include Austrians. There are about 14,000 Austrians.
