§ Major HUNT
asked the Home Secretary whether it is the duty of aliens to register themselves; whether a person lodging an unregistered alien without payment is liable to be prosecuted and fined; and are persons lodging unregistered aliens in public - houses, boarding - houses, and cottages liable to be prosecuted and fined?
§ Sir G. CAVE
With the exception of female alien friends who were resident in the Metropolitan Police district prior to the 14th February, 1916, all aliens are required to register with the police under Article 19 of the Aliens Restriction Order, and paragraph 2 of Article 19 provides that where an alien is lodging with or living as a member of the household of any other person it shall be the duty of that person either himself to furnish with respect to the alien the particulars which the alien is required to supply on registration, or to give notice of the presence of the alien in his household to the registration officer. Persons not complying with the Order are liable to prosecution.
