HC Deb 16 February 1982 vol 18 cc76-7W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what date and for what purpose Mr. Lawrence Roland, an American citizen from Atlanta, Georgia, was admitted into the United Kingdom; and in view of the fact that this man was found guilty at the Old Bailey on Wednesday 3 February of threatening to cause explosions at Euston Station and Capital Radio, if he will deport him.

Mr. Raison

Mr. Roland was admitted to the United Kingdom for six months as a visitor last October. On 3 February, at the Central Criminal Court, he was convicted of planting a hoax bomb and making two hoax bomb threats. He was bound over to keep the peace on condition that he left the United Kingdom immediately and did not return within a period of 20 years. Arrangements were made for his departure to the United States that same day.
