§ Q74. Ms. Clare Short
asked the Prime Minister whether she will review the immigration rules applying to the entry of parents in order to allow the Asian community in Great Britain to care as they would like to for their elderly relations.
§ Mr. Biffen
I have been asked to reply.
No. The current rules governing the admission of elderly parents which Parliament has approved strike a fair balance between the claims of family ties and the continuing need to control the rate of immigration to this country.
