HC Deb 15 March 1965 vol 708 cc217-8W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department by what authority he prevents foreign nationals who have committed no offence against British or international laws from entering this country; and whether he will give an assurance that such persons will be enabled and entitled to enter Great Britain without let or hindrance.

Sir F. Soskice

The Aliens Order 1953 does not restrict the power to refuse leave to land to aliens who have committed offences, nor could I undertake so to limit its exercise.
