Mr. IRVINE:

Is the hon. leader of the Opposition correct when he states that this law places the British immigrant and the immigrant from other countries on the
same basis? As I understand the present law, it means this: that if a man from, say, Russia who has been naturalized here commits a crime after he receives his citizenship, he cannot be deported, but if a British subject commits such a crime after living in this country as long, say, as the Russian, he can be deported. Is that so, or is it not so?
