§ Mr. Madden
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Pakistan nationals who entered the United Kingdom via Malaysia have applied for asylum(a) on entry and (b) after entry in each of the last five years; how many applications have been (i) granted and (ii) refused; on how many applications a decision is pending; how many have been (1) upheld and (2) dismissed at appeal; and in respect of how many an appeal is awaited. 
§ Mr. Kirkhope
[holding answer 26 February 1996]: Information regarding the number of asylum seekers who have travelled through other countries before arriving in the United Kingdom is not held centrally. A breakdown of applications, initial decisions or appeals for such cases is, therefore, not available.
General information on asylum applications from nationals of Pakistan, including a breakdown of appeal determinations in 1994. can be found in the Home Office Statistical Bulletin "Asylum Statistics United Kingdom 1994", issue 15/95, a copy of which is available in the Library.
