U.K. Lawmakers Hold Debate on Barring Donald Trump
Members of British Parliament discuss restricting the U.S. presidential hopeful from entering the country

LONDON—British lawmakers debated on Monday whether Donald Trump should be barred from the U.K., the latest international fallout to his call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S.

The debate doesn’t compel the government to take any action, and the government has already signaled that Mr. Trump, a businessman with interests in the U.K., won’t be barred. But the unusual parliamentary session marks a rare intervention by British lawmakers into a U.S. presidential hopeful’s campaign.

Immigration Minister James Brokenshire said the government doesn't comment on people who may be prevented from entering the country. But he added that the U.S. was the U.K.’s most important bilateral partner and it was in Britain’s interest to engage with all presidential hopefuls even if there was profound disagreement.
