asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, why Mr. Lagatolla, who resided in London for 21 years prior to his being interned in 1940, whose two children are British born, is to be repatriated without any reason being given to himself or to his wife and children.

While it would be contrary to established practice to detail the reasons for a decision in any individual case, I am prepared to say that Mr. Lagatolla is an alien of enemy nationality whose continued presence here is undesirable.
