HC Deb 21 July 1969 vol 787 c265W
86. Mr. A. Royle

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many times during the past 15 years a Secretary of State has used the discretionary power of deportation set out in Article 20(2)(b) of the Aliens Order, 1953, on the ground that an alien's continued presence in the United Kingdom was not to the public good; and if he will detail the names, dates and nationalities involved.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

From 1954 to 1968 690 aliens were deported under Article 20(2)(b) of the Aliens Order 1953, generally after conviction by a court. It would not be appropriate to give names which in a number of cases would refer to events that took place some years ago.
