HC Deb 14 June 1973 vol 857 c351W
Mr. Barnes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will clarify the interpretation he puts on the words "ordinarily resident in the United Kingdom" in administering the Immigration Act 1971.

Mr. Lane

Ordinary residence is a term which has to be construed in the light of all the circumstances that are relevant to a particular case, and I cannot helpfully make any general statement.
