asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Senator Arthur Lewis, a member of the illegal Rhodesian regime, was permitted to enter the United Kingdom; if any conditions have been imposed on his stay; if, in the light of information supplied by the hon. Member for Aberdeen, North, he will now arrange for Senator Lewis to be deported; and if he will make a statement.

No record can be traced of the circumstances of Senator Arthur Lewis's admission to this country. He is not, however, to the best of our knowledge, a member of the Rhodesia Front and is not considered to come within the categories of persons connected with Rhodesia who are to be made subject to passport and travel restrictions in accordance with the statement made in the House by the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs on 27th June 1968.
