§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give the figures of the New Commonwealth and Pakistani citizens accepted for settlement between 1973–75 and 1975–77, and the reasons for acceptance, on the basis of grandparent born in the United Kingdom, marriage, completion of four years' employment, and other dependants and children.
§ Dr. Summerskill
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply my hon. Friend gave to a Question by the hon. Member for Horsham and Crawley (Mr. Hordern) on 3rd February—[Vol. 943, cols. 339–340.]—which includes estimates for 1977. Further details of the figures for 19731976 are given in the annual Command Papers the latest of which is "Control of Immigration, Statistics, 1976" (Cmnd. 6883). Detailed figures for 1977 will be published in due course.
