HC Deb 15 February 1982 vol 18 cc4-5W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will make it his policy to deport all aliens or persons who are non-British, and who are convicted of rape, to their countries of origin after completion of their prison sentences.

Mr. Raison

Deportation is always considered when a person liable to be deported is convicted of rape but each case is dealt with on its merits as required by the immigration rules.
