HC Deb 01 April 1958 vol 585 c112W
77. Mr. Stonehouse

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies for what reasons Mr. Eric Marles, Town Planning Officer and Architect to Nairobi City Council, is being deported from Kenya.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

No deportation order has been made against Mr. Marles. When his temporary employment pass expired, he applied for an entry permit giving him authority to stay in Kenya. This was refused because the authorities were not satisfied that his engaging in the employment offered would be of benefit to the inhabitants generally of the Colony. Mr. Marles has since been declared a prohibited immigrant, but is being allowed temporarily to stay in Kenya since he has obtained leave to apply to the Supreme Court for an order of certiorari in respect of the refusal to grant an entry permit.
