§ Mr. Beith
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will publish in the Official Report a table showing (1) the number of work permits for managerial posts held by non-EEC aliens currently in force, (2) the countries of origin of the holders of such permits and (3) the periods of years for which such permits have been held.
§ Mr. John Grant
The information is not available in the form requested. A work permit is issued for a maximum of 12 months but an extension of stay may be granted by the Home Office for a further three years if the employer confirms that he still wishes to employ the work permit holder. After four years in approved employment the worker's conditions of stay may be revoked and
