HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 c387

asked the Home Secretary, in view of the unanimous judgment given by the Lord Chief Justice and two other judges of the High Court in the case of the Due de Chateau-Thierry that the deportation order issued by the Home Office in that case was illegal, how many similar orders have been enforced against persons having no money to test their legality; whether all deportation orders since issued are in conformity with the judgment of the Court; whether he will specify the alteration; and whether amends will be made to all illegally deported or the illegality legalised in any way?


This case has been taken to the Court of Appeal and the judgment of the Court has not yet been delivered. In the meantime I can only say that the decision of the Divisional Court has been carefully followed in all action since taken by the Home Office.
