HC Deb 10 May 1934 vol 289 cc1268-9W

asked the Minister of Labour if he will state the number of foreign workers entering and obtaining work in this country during 1933, and the number who had been in work and left the country during the same period?


The exact particulars asked for are not available, but I would refer my hon. Friend to the Home Office statistics as to the total number of foreigners entering and leaving this country. During 1933 permission to take employment in this country was given to 9,939 foreigners, in most cases for a period of under 12 months.
