§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Irish terrorists who were expelled from Great Britain since the Birmingham pub bombings have been allowed since to return.
§ Mr. Brittan
The information available relates to the exclusion orders made under the Prevention of Terrorism (Temporary Provisions) Acts 1974 and 1976 which were subsequently revoked. The number of such orders revoked between 29 November 1974 and 30 June 1979 was published in Table 3 of the Home Office Statistical Bulletin No. 7/79 issued on 24 July, 1979, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.
