HC Deb 05 August 1924 vol 176 cc2780-1W

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that a person whose certificate has been revoked under the provisions of the British Nationality and Status of Aliens Act, 1918, Section 1 (1), on the ground that he had shown himself by act to be disloyal to His Majesty, and who is in fact known to have committed treason in that he left the country on the outbreak of war and joined the forces of His Majesty's enemies, has been permitted to land and is now staying in this country on a visit; whether he will take steps to have that person arrested and brought to trial, or whether he will forthwith make an order to have him deported; and whether he will give an undertaking that that person and others guilty of similar offences will not in future be permitted to land on any pretext whatsoever?


I shall be obliged if the hon. and learned Member will communicate to me the name and any other particulars of the person whom he has in mind, so that I may identify the case and examine it thoroughly before communicating finally with the hon. Member.
