HC Deb 25 January 1972 vol 829 cc423-4W
Miss Lestor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what special arrangements exist for immigration for citizens of Malta.

Mr. Sharples

As my hon. Friend the Minister of State, Department of Employ- ment explained in reply to a Question on 26th May, 1971, there is a special annual allocation of 600 employment vouchers for citizens of Malta. The normal Category A criteria for the other independent Commonwealth countries do not apply to this allocation.

In all other respects citizens of Malta are treated in the same way as other Commonwealth citizens.—[Vol. 818, c. 179–181.]
