HC Deb 24 May 1962 vol 660 c55W
42. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many aliens seeking to enter the country for short periods and indefinitely, respectively, were refused permission for other reasons than ill-health or criminal records in 1961.

Mr. Renton

3,053 aliens were refused leave to land in 1961 for reasons other than ill-health or criminal record. The available figures do not differentiate between aliens intending short visits and those seeking to stay indefinitely.
