§ Mr. Madden
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make it his policy to ensure that Mr. Ghazanfer Ali, a Pakistani national, at present detained in Pakistan, who has been granted indefinite leave to remain in the United Kingdom, does not lose his automatic right to rejoin his wife and family in the United Kingdom if he is unable to re-enter the United Kingdom within two years of leaving the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
If Mr. Ali is out of the United Kingdom for longer than two years he will need to apply for a visa. Any application that Mr. Ali makes will be considered on its merits under the relevant part of the immigration rules.
