HC Deb 14 May 1981 vol 4 cc313-4W
Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether immigration statistics include those granted asylum; and, if so, under what category.

Mr. Raison

People granted asylum are included in the control of immigration statistics, though not as a separate category. Such people are included on their arrival in this country in the statistics of persons admitted to this country, and those who later apply for and are granted settlement are included in the statistics for settlement on removal of time limit.
