§ Mr. N. Pannell
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether he is aware that the Indian Government have instructed the High Commissioner for India in the United Kingdom to regularise the illegal travel documents of certain Indian immigrants, which will have the effect of allowing the families of such immigrants to join them in the United Kingdom; and if he will state the estimated number of immigrants involved.
Yes. The Government of India have informed Her 163W Majesty's Government of these arrangements. I cannot, however, estimate the number of immigrants involved.
