HC Deb 06 May 1958 vol 587 c97W
Mr. N. Pannell

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will publish a list of those Colonial Territories which impose restrictions on the entry of British nationals or have the power to deport such nationals, together with details of the regulations in each case.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

Immigration into the various Colonial Territories is regulated by legislation, which usually imposes restrictions on the entry of aliens and the entry of British subjects and British protected persons who do not belong to the territory concerned. Most Colonial Territories have legislation under which persons who do not belong to the territory can be deported in certain circumstances. This legislation is contained in a large number of enactments, and varies in detail from territory to territory. A complete summary would be too lengthy for circulation in the OFFICIAL REPORT, but if the hon. Member would like detailed information regarding any particular territory, I will arrange for it to be sent to him.
