HC Deb 29 April 2004 vol 420 cc1316-7W
Mrs. Dunwoody

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many US visitors have been deported from the UK for incorrect information on their visa applications in the last 12 months. [168252]

Mr. Browne

US nationals who are coming to the UK as visitors/tourists do not require a visa.

In 2002 (the latest period for which data are available) 1,030 US nationals who had been refused leave to enter the UK were removed from the country.

Deportations are a specific subset of removals alongside persons subject to administrative removal, removal due to illegal entry action or those refused entry at port and subsequently removed. Information on the nationality of those people removed as a result of deportation action is not available.
