HC Deb 30 June 1971 vol 820 c145W
Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Mr. David Dellinger, a leading member of a non-violent American movement against the war in Vietnam, has been refused admission to Great Britain, in view of the fact that he intended to see his teenage daughter, and that he had no political engagements of any kind; and if he will now admit Mr. Dellinger who is waiting in Paris.

Mr. Maudling

Because of his recent conviction in his own country of a serious criminal offence. The answer to the second part of the Question is "No".
