HC Deb 19 November 1959 vol 613 c163W
Mr. Brockway

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies how many refugees from Haiti have reached the Bahamas during the last twelve months; how many of these have been returned to Haiti; how many have been detained; and how many have been granted asylum.

Mr. Iain Macleod

None. From time to time illegal immigrants seeking manual labour have been smuggled into the Colony and these are deported when traced; but no person seeking political asylum has been refused admittance.
