HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc918-9W

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will state the total number of interned enemy aliens, distinguishing between Germans and other enemy aliens, whose cases were considered this year by Mr. Justice Younger's Committee and the number of these persons who were recommended by that Committee for exemption from deportation; and how many of the persons so recommended for exemption had been interned on the recommendation of Mr. Justice Sankey's Committee in 1918?


The figures asked for in the first part of the question are 4,300, of whom 3,250 were Germans, and 3,890, of whom 3,030 were Gentians. It is not possible to state the particular occasions at which these men were severally interned.
