HL Deb 05 February 1985 vol 459 c1054WA
Lord Avebury

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it is their intention that, in future, individuals applying for judicial review of a decision to remove or deport shall be detained for immediate removal after the table review and before the completion of the application by way of a hearing in open court.

The Minister of State, Home Office (Lord Elton)

The normal practice is not to remove a person while there is an outstanding application for judicial review or for leave to make such an application of which my department is aware. When a table application has been rejected, however, there is no outstanding action before the courts until the application is renewed orally before a judge of the High Court or the Divisional Court of the Queen's Bench Division.
