§ Mr. McNamara
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many persons have been served with exclusion orders under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Act; how many have been deported to (a) Northern Ireland and (b) the Republic of Ireland; how many have appealed against exclusion orders; and how many appeals have been successful.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
My predecessor and I have made 88 exclusion orders under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Acts 1974 and 1976. Notice of the making of an exclusion order has been served on 80 people, 74 of whom were removed, 53 to Northern Ireland and 21 to the Irish Republic. 18 of the 80 made representations objecting to the order, and my predecessor revoked the order in five of these 18 cases.
