Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many work permits were granted to citizens of Argentina to work in the United Kingdom for each of the last five years together; and in what industrial group these persons worked.

Mr. John Grant

The available information is as follows:

1976; and what were the corresponding figures for April 1973, April 1974 and April 1975.

Mr. Golding

Following is the information:

April 1974 8,911 3,182
April 1975 6,516 1,381
