HC Deb 10 March 1966 vol 725 cc612-3W
14. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the normal procedure for informing aliens threatened with deportation of the result of their appeals to the chief metropolitan magistrate; and what period of notice is given to them to allow them to put their affairs in order.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The procedure, including the period of notice, has varied with the circumstances of the particular case. In future, an alien who has made representations to the Chief Magistrate against a proposal to deport him will ordinarily be allowed a reasonable time in which to settle his affairs after he has been informed of the outcome of his appeal.
