Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizen Ship by Registration (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: It would be wrong to do that and to give that undertaking. We had to treat each case on its merits. When there are special compassionate grounds one makes an exception, but the normal rule, applied by both governments, is that a woman is expected to go to the country in which her husband is domiciled. It is not normal for a married woman domiciled here to be able to bring her husband here to...

Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizen Ship by Registration (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: With the leave of the House. I think I am right in saying that the agreement of the Islands was obtained for the extension of the right of patriality to a person who is born in the Islands. All the Amendment does is to extend that to a ship or aircraft belonging to one of the Islands, which is a much narrower point.

Friend to meet the removal expenses of a person who has either become liable to deportation on conviction and recommendation by a court, or belongs to the family of such a person, and who is willing to leave the country without a deportation order being made. In other words,...

Clause 6: Recommendations by Court for Deportation (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. This is a point involving Scottish law which was raised on Report by the hon. and learned Member for Edinburgh, Leith (Mr. Ronald King Murray). The Amendment will meet the point that he raised.

Clause 11: Construction of References to Entry, and Other Phrases Relating to Travel (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. The reason for this Amendment is that there are certain kinds of oil rig which, even if they have their legs up, are not ships within the meaning of the Bill, although they are capable of being towed by a ship. The provisions of the Bill for the examination of persons arriving in the United Kingdom apply at...

Clause 11: Construction of References to Entry, and Other Phrases Relating to Travel (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: I do not for a moment pretend that hordes of immigrants are arriving on oil rigs, but it is possible for someone to arrive in this way. An oil rig may be stationary at sea. People come from abroad to work on such oil rigs, landing by helicopter, and it might well be that they would be towed by a tug into the United Kingdom. Without this provision, such persons would not be subject to...

Clause 13: Appeals Against Exclusion from United Kingdom (19 Oct 1971)

Clause 24: Illegal Entry and Similar Offences (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment. It might be convenient if we discussed at the same time Amendment No. 60, in page 37, line 38 at end insert: (4A) A person who has renounced citizenship of the United Kingdom and Colonies under this Act shall not be entitled to be registered as a citizen thereof under subsection (0) above, but may be so...

Clause 24: Illegal Entry and Similar Offences (19 Oct 1971)

Mr Richard Sharples: With the leave of the House, may I say that these Amendments refer only to the very narrow point concerning people who have not been admitted to this country. In many cases, it is convenient that they should not be held in detention but should be allowed to stay in, say, a hotel convenient to the airport or port through which they came. This does not involve any question of people having to...
