HC Deb 31 October 1966 vol 735 cc7-8W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Minister of Labour how many Category A work vouchers under the Commonwealth Immigrants Act were not granted to applicants in 1965 because the ceiling quota laid down in the White Paper, Immigration from the Commonwealth, was reached; and how many were not granted to date this year for the same reason.

Mrs. Shirley Williams

It is estimated that about 3,000 Category A applied for in 1965 had not been issued by the end of the year because the quota laid down in the White Paper had been filled; a similar estimate to date is not available.
