“The unlawful exercise by the Secretary of State of the power to detain foreign national prisoners gave rise to a private law action for the tort of false imprisonment without the need for proof of damage on the part of the prisoners, even though it could be demonstrated that they could and would still have been detained if the power had been lawfully exercised. However, in those circumstances the prisoners had suffered no loss or damage and were entitled to no more than nominal damages.”
