ALIENS ACT, 1905.
I have set out in Tables XXIII. and XXIV. the particulars of the numbers of Aliens
arriving in this port on immigrant and non-immigrant ships, from which it will be seen
that the total of such arrivals in the Port of London during the year was 41,601 ; that
of this number 18,645 were cabin passengers, 7,764 were exempted second class, and
7,057 were transmigrants. Deducting these, there remain 8,135. Of these, 1,315
were proceeding to destinations outside the United Kingdom, 516 had returning holiday
tickets, 1,320 were Alien seamen, and 1,154 were alien residents in this country
returning hither. Deducting these, a balance of 3,830 aliens remains. Of these 104
were refused leave to land, and the remainder 3,726 is the estimated total of alien
immigrants into London, via the Port, during the year, and who probably settled in
this country. These figures, however, are not absolute, the completed official returns
not having yet been published.
Of those refused leave to land, 19 were rejected by your Medical Officer, as Medical
Inspector under the Act.
