§ Mr. Stanbrook
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if a separate record is kept of each category of immigrants' dependants admitted for settlement from the New Commonwealth and Pakistan since 1965; and, if not, what is his estimate of the proportions represented by each category in the overall figures of dependants given in his Written Answer to the hon. Member for Orpington on 3rd May, Official Report, column 228 et seq.
§ Dr. Summerskill
Information relating to categories of dependants other than children and, from 1st September 1974, wives is not centrally recorded. Statistics for children and, from 1975, wives were given in my reply to a Question by the hon. Member on 3rd May. Sufficient information on which to base estimates is not readily available.
