asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will reconsider existing policy whereby prisoners who have completed their sentence and are subsequently deported are given no subsistence allowance to carry them over for a few days on arrival at their destination.

I propose to review the scales of allowances to be paid to or left in the possession of persons deported from this country for their subsistence on the journey arid a few days thereafter.
