§ 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.
