To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what discussions his Department has had with the US Administration on the creation of the list of foreign nationals barred from entry to the UK, with particular reference to the inclusion of Michael Savage on that list. (279576)

The Home Office did not consult the US Administration about the creation of the list of foreign nationals who are excluded from the United Kingdom on unacceptable behaviour grounds, which included US citizen, Michael Savage. However following publication of the list on 5 May, Home Office and FCO officials have discussed the Government’s policy on exclusion with American officials.
