FIRST ANNUAL REPORT
H.M. INSPECTOR UNDER THE ALIENS ACT.
TO THE RIGHT HON. HERBERT J. GLADSTONE, M.P.,
SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT.
I HAVE the honour to submit a report on the Aliens Act for the year 1906.
RETURNS UNDER THE ACT.
Under section 5 (1) of the Act the Secretary of State is empowered by order to direct the master of any ship landing or embarking passengers at any port in the United Kingdom to furnish a return giving such particulars as may be required for the time being "with respect to any such passengers who are aliens." The returns which have been prescribed under this section and are now in operation may be divided into two classes (1) Those giving details of the traffic to and from ports in Europe or within the Mediterranean Sea, or more briefly, the European traffic; and (2) Those giving details of the traffic to and from ports not in Europe or within the Mediterranean Sea, or more briefly, the extra-European traffic. The returns giving details of alien passengers from ports in Europe or within the Mediterranean Sea have been in operation since January 1st, 1906, and the tables appended to this report are practically confined to these returns. As the statistics under the Aliens Act, 1905, are furnished in an entirely different manner from the statistics previously furnished under the Registration of Aliens Act, 1836, and published hitherto by the Board of Trade, I have not attempted any comparison between the figures for 1906 and the figures for previous years.
IMMIGRATION AND NON-IMMIGRATION PORTS.
Immigration ports are those at which Immigration Officers and Medical Inspectors have been appointed under section 6 (1) of the Act. These ports are Cardiff (including Barry Dock), Dover, Folkestone, Grangemouth, Grimsby, Harwich, Hull, Leith, Liverpool, London (including Queenborough), Newhaven, Southampton, and Tyne Ports (including Newcastle, and North and South Shields). All other ports are known as non-immigration ports.
