§ 16. Mr. Madden
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make arrangements during 1993 to reduce the maximum period for which a visa national may visit the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
I have no plans to reduce the maximum period for a visit specified in the immigration rules, but I will consider in due course whether any changes are called for in connection with the draft external frontiers convention when action is needed to ratify it.
