Points of Order

10.25 pm

Mr. Jeremy Corbyn (Islington, North): On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. You may recall that earlier today I asked a question about a woman called Sita Kamara whom the Home Office is trying to remove from Britain. I have since learnt that, despite my raising the matter here this afternoon and receiving a letter from the Home Office this evening, the Home Secretary intends to remove her from Britain at 7 o'clock tomorrow morning, thus denying Members of Parliament an opportunity to make representations and apparently denying her access to a special medical examination by the Medical Campaign for the Victims of Torture.

I am deeply concerned about that matter, and I look to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, to advise me as to how best the House could have an opportunity to question the Home Office on what I believe to be a totally unfair and irrational act against a deeply disturbed young woman who has been on hunger strike and in prison since she arrived in this country to seek asylum from the Ivory Coast. I believe the matter to be urgent and, while I apologise for raising it now, clearly there are no other opportunities for me to do so.

Mr. Deputy Speaker (Mr. Michael Morris): The hon. Gentleman knows full well that that is not a matter on which the Chair can rule at all. Treasury Bench Members are here, however, and they will have heard the hon. Gentleman's plea.

Mr. Harry Cohen (Leyton): Further to that point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker.
