HL Deb 11 March 2004 vol 658 c191WA
Lord Janner of Braunstone

asked Her Majesty's Government:

In the light of recent comments by Abu Hanza, who called the Holocaust a "lie", what steps they are taking to expediate proceedings for his deportation. [HL1686]

Baroness Scotland of Asthal

The current proceedings relate to deprivation of citizenship not deportation. The appeal against deprivation is currently awaiting a hearing by the Special Immigration Appeals Commission (SIAC). The timing of the appeal is in the hands of SIAC, not the Home Office. It is well aware of the need for the matter to be dealt with expeditiously. The appeal is listed to start on 26 April.
