§ Sir W. de FRECE
asked the Home Secretary the number of aliens to whom certificates of naturalisation were refused during 1925, indicating the percentage of Russians?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
As I stated in reply to the hon. Member for Central Southwark (Colonel Day) on Wednesday last, 266 certificates were refused in 1925. I estimate that rather more than 50 per cent. of these refusals related to persons born in territory which used to belong to Russia.
