HC Deb 30 March 1909 vol 3 c169

asked the Under-Secretary for India whether he is aware that by the law in India a person deported without charge or trial made under the Bengal Regulation No. III. is expressly debarred from obtaining a writ of habeas corpus for his release and from beginning any action for damages against the Government; and whether, in view of this, it is proposed to so amend the law as to give those British subjects who have been deported an opportunity of availing themselves of the law of habeas corpus and claiming damages for such action against them?


The Secretary of State has no intention of suggesting such an amendment of the law.
