HC Deb 16 April 1919 vol 114 c2923W

asked the Home Secretary whether, having regard to the sacrifice of British commercial interests and to the injury to the British export trade to Italy involved in the deportation of one Dominico Boggiano, export merchant, of London, and to the fact that he has now been detained in gaol for some period, he can see his way to accede to the petition recently presented to him by British merchants on behalf of Boggiano, and cancel the order for deportation made against him by the justices at the North London Sessions?


No, Sir. I have given careful consideration to the petition, but I regret that I cannot accede to it.
