§ 44. Sir D. Renton
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department for how long it has been the practice to require the holders of Ministry of Labour vouchers or entry certificates to provide particulars of dependants entitled to enter the United Kingdom with them or to follow later; how many dependants will thus be entitled to enter this year; and how many have so far done so.
§ Mr. Taverne
The arrangement was announced last August, in paragraph 19 of the White Paper "Immigration from the Commonwealth" (Cmnd. 2739), and was put into practice last October. We are making a statistical survey of the particulars notified at our posts overseas, but we do not know how many of the dependants named in pursuance of this arrangement were among the Commonwealth citizens admitted as dependants since October.
