§ Mr. Tilley
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many persons have entered the United Kingdom under the voucher scheme introduced by the Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1968.
§ Mr. Raison
About 30,000 United Kingdom passport holders with special vouchers were admitted to the United Kingdom under the special voucher scheme between the start of the scheme in 1968 and 30 September 1980. The number of dependants of these people who were admitted to the United Kingdom during the same period is not identified separately in the statistics.
