Geert Wilders

Volume 711: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether Mr Geert Wilders was on the list of people recently published by the Home Secretary as having been banned from entering the United Kingdom. [HL3540]

No. The list published by my right honourable friend the Home Secretary on 5 May 2009 named 16 individuals who have recently been excluded from the UK by her on grounds of unacceptable behaviour.

Mr Wilders was refused admission to the UK on 12 February 2009 on public policy and public security grounds under the Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2006.
