HC Deb 24 November 1938 vol 341 cc1926-7
27. Mr. Turton

asked the Home Secretary the number of appeals made in each of the last 10 years to the Court of Criminal Appeal against a sentence of detention in a Borstal institution; and the number of cases in which the appeal has been successful?

Mr. Lloyd

As the answer is in the form of a tabular statement, I propose, with my hon. Friend's permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the statement:

Friend's permission, circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Rear-Admiral Beamish

Can my hon. Friend say what is the reason for not carrying out all these orders?

Mr. Lloyd

There are certain cases where it is not possible to establish the nationality of the persons concerned, and when that is so there are technical bars to the carrying out of the order.

Commander Sir Archibald Southby

Does not my hon. Friend think that the removal from this country of aliens of bad character would give more room for the introduction to this country of alien refugees of good character?

Following is the answer:

1936. 1937
1. Deportation orders made or aliens left the country under arrangements made by themselves or on their behalf 172 134
2. Recommendation for deportation quashed on appeal 4
3. Decision on merits not to make Deportation Orders 17 19
4. Nationality could not be established 10 13
5. Alien released on bail pending appeal absconded 1
6. Cases not decided 1 1
