HC Deb 02 March 1944 vol 397 c1558
18. Sir John Wardlaw-Milne

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Japanese subjects registered here when ordered to do so.

Mr. H. Morrison

The requirement that all foreigners resident here shall register with the police has been in force since the last war. Japanese became subject to the alien enemy restrictions in December, 1941, and I do not know of any failures to report to the police on that or any other occasion. The number at present registered is approximately 570, of whom 400 are men.
