§ Lord AVEBURY
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they expect to reach a decision in the case of Mr. Ghullum Akbar Rind, ref. A.225069, who originally applied for refugee status on 21st July, 1976 and whether there are any refugee applications outstanding for longer than this.
§ Lord BELSTEAD
Mr. Rind's application was refused more than three years ago. Enforcement of that decision has been deferred because of appeal proceedings by Mr. Rind, which were finally dismissed in March 1980, and latterly because of further representations on his behalf to the effect that circumstances in Pakistan have changed so that his claim to asylum is stronger.
