§ Dr. Edmund Marshall
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department under what powers, and for what reason, an immigration officer from Hull took possession on 5 April of the passport of Mr. M S G, a foreign national, now residing in the Goole parliamentary constituency.
§ Mr. David Waddington
Mr. M S G was refused leave to enter the United Kingdom on 22 September 1982. He was granted temporary permission pending consideration of representations made on his behalf. These representations were rejected on 28 March, and on 5 April an immigration officer requested the return of the passport in order that arrangements could be made for its renewal and Mr. M S G's removal from the United Kingdom. Mr. M S G was provided with a certified photocopy of the document for identification purposes. Mr. M S G's removal has now been deferred pending consideratio of further representations from the hon. Member.
