HC Deb 29 January 1986 vol 90 cc522-3W
Mr. Roger King

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list his reasons for refusing entry into the United Kingdom to Mr. Bryan Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waddington

Mr. Hubbard applied through his solicitors in 1982 for an entry clearance to visit the United Kingdom but declined to attend an interview with an entry clearance officer. His application was therefore refused because we could not be satisfied that he qualified for admission under the relevant provisions in the immigration rules.
