HC Deb 02 July 1982 vol 26 c396W
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.
