§ Mr. Fatchett
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in each of the five years up to and including 1982, how many people seeking entry into the United Kingdom were given temporary admission; what categories they fell into under the Immigration Rules; and how many of those originally granted temporary admission were granted leave to remain permanently after consideration of their cases.
§ Mr. Waddington
[pursuant to his reply, 22 December 1983, c. 349]: The number of people seeking entry to the United Kingdom who were given temporary admission either pending further examination or following refusal of leave to enter was as follows:
Numbers 1978 3,874 1979 4,742 1980 5,864 1981 5,776 1982 6,584
I regret that records are not maintained in a way that enables us to supply the other information requested.
