HC Deb 05 February 1976 vol 904 cc688-9W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) on what basis the place of temporary domicile and eventual return to his home country of a foreigner who comes to this country for a temporary visit are checked; and what steps are taken to ensure that these visitors do eventually return to their own countries;

(2) whether he is able to ensure that aliens, including those from the EEC who come to Great Britain by land, sea, and air, for holidays, education, visits and other reasons for temporary visits do eventually return to their home country; and if he will outline the working of the system.

Mr. Alexander W. Lyon

It is not practicable to describe the operation of the immigration controls in the compass of a parliamentary reply, but I would refer my hon. Friend to the provisions of the Immigration Act 1971 and of the Immigration Rules for Control on, and after, Entry (HC 81 and HC 82, as amended).
