HC Deb 13 February 1911 vol 21 c844W

asked the Home Secretary whether he intends to alter or amend the regulations issued by Lord Gladstone in respect of the Aliens Act, 1905?


I must reserve my statement of policy until the Government Bill is introduced.


asked the Home Secretary if he will say what is the number of aliens who have been excluded during the years 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909, and 1910, respectively, under Section 1, Subsection (c) of the Aliens Act, 1905; and what is the number of aliens convicted during the year 1910 of such aliens recommended by the courts for expulsion under Section 3, Sub-section (a) and (b) respectively of the Aliens Act, 1905, the number of such aliens against whom an expulsion order was made, and of aliens against whom an expulsion order had been made who were proceeded against for contravention of such order under Section 3, Subsection (2) of the Aliens Act, 1905?


No alien immigrant has been refused leave to land under the enactment mentioned in the first paragraph of the question. The figures asked for in the latter part of the question will, as in previous, years, be published as soon as possible. They have not yet been completed, but I may give them provisionally as follows:—Number of aliens received into prison on conviction in 1910, 2,271; number of recommendations for expulson, 403; number of certificates that aliens have been in receipt of poor relief within the meaning of Section 3 (1) (b) of the Act, 59; number of expulsion orders in respect of criminal aliens, 412; and in respect of other aliens, 47; number of aliens found in the United Kingdom in contravention of expulsion orders, 74, or about four per cent. of the total number of aliens expelled since the Act came into force.
