§ Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Labour the number of alien waiters who were granted certificates under the Alien Immigration Regulations in 1925, and for what period?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
One hundred and thirty-seven permits were issued in 1925 in respect of alien waiters; they were in all cases for limited periods not exceeding one year. Ninety-one of these permits were issued on condition that a British subject was sent abroad in each case to obtain Continental experience. Of the remainder, 40 permits were granted to augment the staff for the Empire Exhibition, Wembley, restaurants, but only 31 of these were used.
