HC Deb 17 May 1971 vol 817 c232W
Mr. Bidwell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many alien work permit holders are in the United Kingdom under a one-year permit, and how many are under a further concurrent three-year permission.

Mr. Sharples

In 1970, 24,590 alien work permit holders were admitted for a stay of 12 months. I cannot give the number still here, nor the number whose stay has been extended for three years.
