Internment and deportation of aliens, 1940

This cartoon accompanies an article by Lewis Silkin MP in the 'Labour Book Service Bulletin' for August 1940, in which he criticises the indiscriminating internment or deportation to Canada of aliens, including refugees from fascism. The Labour Book Service was set up by the TUC and Labour Party in 1938 to provide books on topical subjects to activists. Twelve books were provided each year for a monthly subscription of 2 shillings and sixpence, although this was later reduced to 6 books per year due to wartime paper shortages.
