HC Deb 26 February 1959 vol 600 c179W
3. Mr. Osborne

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on his negotiations with the Commonwealth Governments regarding the repatriation of criminals irrespective of race, colour or creed, from the United Kingdom; and when he now proposes to introduce legislation for this purpose and fulfil his promises on this matter.

Mr. R. A. Butler

This matter has been receiving the active consideration of Her Majesty's Government, and consulations in regard to it will continue. Legislation in the present Session is not, however, in contemplation.
