HC Deb 15 February 1973 vol 850 cc389-90W
53. Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will reconsider his decision to deport Miss Marlene Lotts, a South African national, in view of the fact that her 10-year-old daughter is a British citizen and would have to register as a coloured person and give up her British citizenship under South African law if she were deported.

Mr. Lane

My right hon. Friend has taken no decision to deport Miss Lotts. She was admitted on 25th September 1972 as a visitor and her subsequent application for permanent residence has been refused by the Home Office. She has notified her intention to appeal and it would not be proper for me to comment on her case at this stage.
