§ Mr. Peter Rees
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what was the number of cases brought to his notice in the past 12 months, listed by countries, of United Kingdom citizens who have been refused work permits or who have been refused renewal of their work permits by countries of the Commonwealth.322W
§ Mr. Kershaw
No collated statistics of such cases are maintained. Refusals of work permits or refusal of renewals are not necessarily brought to the notice of our posts, so that I could not give my hon. and learned Friend an accurate reply.
