HC Deb 29 January 1981 vol 997 c487W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Lord Privy Seal, further to his reply to the hon. Member for Northampton, North on 26 January, if he will give in detail the reasons why providing a list of voluntary repatriation schemes in European Economic Community countries would be disproportionately expensive; and what is his estimate of the cost of providing such information in respect of each individual country.

Sir Ian Gilmour

The cost of staff time overseas in making the necessary inquiries would far exceed the customary limit.
