HC Deb 14 July 1982 vol 27 c394W
Mr. McMahon

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many persons, by sex and nationality, have been granted political asylum since May 1979.

Mr. Raison

Statistics for the years 1979, 1980 and 1981 giving a breakdown by nationality—though not by sex—are available in the Library. The figures for the first six months of 1982 have not yet been collated, but I shall send them to the hon. Member as soon as they are available.
