The Special Immigration Appeals Commission had jurisdiction to determine the question of the lawfulness of immigration detention pending deportation. The power to determine that question was implicit in the statutory power to grant or refuse bail. If that was wrong, the commission was undoubtedly entitled to consider the issue when deciding whether or not to grant bail.
