§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the progress of the case of Miss FR whose fiancé, Mr. JNA (reference A421085/2(S)) has applied for entry clearance.
§ Mr. Renton
Mr. JNA's application was referred to the Home Office by the entry clearance officer in Islamabad so that an interview could be arranged with Miss FR. The interview was carried out on 9 January 1989 at Manchester airport and a report of the interview was sent to the entry clearance officer in Islamabad on 24 February. His decision is awaited. As I undertook in my letter of 15 November to the hon. Member, I shall inform him of the outcome as soon as a decision has been reached.
