Immigration: Exclusion and Deportation

Volume 694: debated on Thursday 26 July 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether in relation to the denial of entry and the removal of persons from the United Kingdom they regard the word “excluded” as having the same meaning as the word “deported”. [HL4921]

They do not have the same meaning. “Exclusion” relates to the denial of entry to the United Kingdom. “Deportation” relates to a person's removal from the United Kingdom following the making of a deportation order against him.
