HC Deb 29 January 1980 vol 977 c582W
Mr. Alton

asked the Lord Privy Seal whether he has made any representations to the Government of Japan about the arrest of Paul McCartney; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Blaker

There has been no requirement for representations. Our embassy has, however, been in touch with the Japanese authorities about the case in accordance with normal consular procedure. Mr. McCartney was deported from Japan on 25 January 1980.
