HC Deb 02 November 1973 vol 863 c23W
Mr. Clinton Davis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Chilean citizens sought and were granted political asylum in the United Kingdom since the seizure of power by the military junta in Chile; and how many were refused.

Mr. Lane

Eleven applications have been received from Chilean nationals either for political asylum or to extend their stay in the United Kingdom as a direct result of events in Chile. Four applications have been granted; the remainder are being considered; none has been refused.
