HC Deb 04 December 1972 vol 847 c313W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Social Services (1) whether he is aware that, up to 13th November, just over 1,000 persons of undetermined nationality were admitted as dependants of United Kingdom passport holders from Uganda; and in how many of these cases welfare benefits were claimed and paid;

(2) whether he is aware that, during the first nine months of 1972, 32,941 Stateless aliens and aliens of doubtful nationality came to Great Britain; and how many of these claimed and were paid welfare benefits.

Mr. Lane

I have been asked to reply.

As to admission, I cannot usefully add to the answer I gave to a Question by the hon. Member on 17th November. The information requested in the second part of the Question is not available.—[Vol. 846, c. 244.]
