§ Mr. Frank R. White
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many applications referring to the entry of male fiancés are pending at British missions on the Indian Sub-continent.
§ Mr. Raison
The latest available information, for the first quarter of 1982, was published on 25 May in table 7 of the quarterly Home Office statistical bulletin, "Control of Immigration Statistics"—issue 9/82—a copy of which is in the Library of the House. That table shows that at the end of March 1982, 2,150 male fiances in the Indian subcontinent were awaiting a decision on their application.
