HC Deb 23 January 1989 vol 145 cc392-3W
Mr. Grant

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Office Department on how many occasions since the Immigration Act 1971 came into force he has used his power under section 21 of that Act, to refer matters for consideration to the appellate authorities; in how many of those instances he accepted the opinion of the adjudicator or tribunal on the matter referred; and if he will identify the cases in which he has used these powers.

Mr. Renton

There is no record that the powers under section 21 have ever been used.
