§ Mr. David Young
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many visitors from the Indian Subcontinent to relatives in the United Kingdom were stopped by immigration officials in each of the last five years; and how many of the stopped visitors had entry certificates.
§ Mr. Raison
Total refusals of entry by citizenship/nationality are published annually in "Control of Immigration: Statistics", table 1(a) and 1(b) of the issue for 1981 (Cmnd. 8533). Separate information is not available on refusals of those seeking admission as visitors to visit relatives or of those with an entry certificate.
