HC Deb 29 October 1953 vol 518 cc409-10W
Sir S. Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps are being taken to control the entry of undesirable citizens from various parts of the Commonwealth into this country; and whether he will take steps to seek additional powers to have these deported when desirable.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

There is no power to refuse admission to this country to persons who can produce satisfactory evidence that they are British subjects. Proposals for legislation to make it possible to deport British subjects would open wide issues and I have no such proposals to make at present.
