§ Mr. Dicks
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the recent admission of links between Pan-Africanist Congress terrorists and Libya, he will deport Mr. Gora Ebrahim, the London representative of the Pan-Africanist Congress, and close down the Congress office in London; and if he will make a statement.423W
§ Mr. David Waddington
I understand that Mr. Ebrahim is not the London representative of the Pan-Africanist Congress. There is no power to prevent foreign political organisations setting up offices here provided that their activities do not contravene our laws. There is, of course, power to deport individuals on the ground that their presence is not conducive to the public good.
