§ 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-424W 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.]
