HC Deb 24 April 1947 vol 436 c131W
89. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what conditions relating to work and training for work are imposed, respectively, on aliens resident in Scotland and England; on such aliens who have applications for naturalisation pending; on exaliens in Scotland and England whose applications for naturalisation have been granted; what conditions in relation to work and training for work govern the transition from the second to the third of these three classes of persons; and what is being done to absorb into industry as quickly as possible the third of these classes.

Mr. Ede

The grant of naturalisation is not dependent on any conditions relating to work or training, and consequently the issues raised by the four latter parts of the Question do not arise. As regards the first part, foreigners admitted to this country for employment are usually subjected to a condition that they take such employment only as is approved by the Ministry of Labour and National Service. In the administration of the Aliens Order there is no differentiation between England and Scotland.
