HC Deb 13 May 1924 vol 173 cc1177-8W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider, in connection with the quarterly Returns relating to aliens, the publication of statistics indicating the classes of occupation and the sex of such aliens?


I regret that, having regard to the great increase of work that would be involved, I do not see my way to have the quarterly Returns of alien passengers elaborated so as to include these particulars. I would, however, refer the hon. Member to the annual Returns, where he will find the figures analysed and classified in a way which may go far to meet his point.
