HC Deb 09 December 1983 vol 50 c261W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to allow Mr. Mahindajit Thiagarajah, a Sri Lankan Tamil, to remain in the United Kingdom for a period of time until it is safe for Tamils to return to Sri Lanka; and if he will withdraw the notice issued by the immigration officer at Gatwick airport on 20 November directing this person to return to Colombo.

Mr. Waddington

I shall write to the hon. Member when I have considered his written representations on the case which I received on 8 December. In the meantime Mr. Thiagarajah, who has been admitted temporarily, will remain under notice of refusal but will not be removed from the United Kingdom.
