HC Deb 10 May 1939 vol 347 c494W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Home Secretary whether he can state the total number of foreigners, including refugees, who are now in this country and who were domiciled abroad prior to June of last year; how many are men of military age, and how many women have children under 10 years of age?

Sir S. Hoare

As regards refugees I would refer to the figures of men, women and children given in my answer of 24th March, 1939. In addition to refugees there have been some foreign women admitted for domestic service. Apart from these two classes, the number of foreigners who have become domiciled in this country since June of last year is very small—but to obtain exact figures much labour in the examination of records would be necessary.
