HC Deb 28 July 1976 vol 916 c242W
Mrs. Knight

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what steps he is taking to assess the extent of the abuse of immigration entry rules through fraudulent and bigamous marriages; and if he will make a statement;

(2) if he will institute more stringent checks on immigrants who seek to remain in Great Britain after contracting a marriage.

Dr. Summerskill

These matters are under review as part of the examination of proposals to deal with cases involving a bogus marriage that my right hon. Friend announced on 5th July.
