§ Sir W. DAVISON
asked the Minister of Labour How many permits have been issued by the Ministry since August last to Germans to come into Great Britain as teachers; and how many permits have been issued to Germans since that date to come to Great Britain in order to learn the English language?458W
§ Mr. LAWSON
The total number of permits issued in respect of German subjects, described as teachers, as between 1st September, 1928, and 30th June, 1929, was 15. In addition, four German subjects permitted to land as students, etc., were subsequently allowed to take up teaching work. A Ministry of Labour permit is not necessary in the case of an alien desiring to enter the country solely for the purpose of learning the English language.
