HC Deb 21 March 1963 vol 674 c91W
79. Mr. Swingler

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many applications from Commonwealth citizens for political asylum in the United Kingdom have been received by his Department since 1881, giving details of each case.

Mr. Brooke

It has not been possible to examine all cases right back to 1881, but apart from Chief Enahoro the only such application from Commonwealth citizens of which I am aware is that of two Cypriots in 1962. There were special considerations in their case and, although committed by the courts for surrender, they were not returned.
