HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 cc401-2W
Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what procedure is followed by his Department to enforce the deportation of illegal immigrants entering the country without permission.

Mr. Callaghan:

I assume my hon. Friend is referring to Commonwealth citizens. Those found within 24 hours of landing can be required to submit to examination by an immigration officer and, if refused admission, can be returned to their country of origin.
