asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he has again refused admittance into Great Britain to Mr. Bert Bensen.
Mr. Bensen is the subject of a deportation order which requires him to remain out of the United Kingdom and which I am not prepared to revoke.
May I ask my right hon. and learned Friend whether he will give some reason why he will not revoke the refusal for Mr. Bensen to visit this country both for family and business reasons? This is not in keeping with British tradition of free entry into this country.
In my opinion, there are ample reasons why my predecessor made the order, and those reasons are still valid.
