§ Colonel VAUGHAN-MORGAN
asked the Minister of Labour whether a record has been kept by the local employment committees of the number of aliens who have been refused uncovenanted benefit under the Orders issued by the right hon. Gentleman the Member for North-West Camberwell (Dr. Macnamara) and Sir Montague Barlow; and, if so, what are the total numbers?
§ Mr. SHAW
Returns of the number of aliens in whose cases the local employment committees recommend refusal of uncovenanted benefit have been kept since May, 1923, the date at which the late Government made aliens resident in this country since 1st January, 1911, eligible for such benefit. The number of refusals between May, 1923, and January, 1924, was 261.
