HC Deb 21 October 1982 vol 29 cc185-6W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the difficulties and problems in Kenya, and the situation of some 60,000 Asians, some 1,500 of whom hold British passports and are anxious to emigrate to the United Kingdom, he proposes to take any steps to facilitate the entry of these people.

Mr. Raison:

We estimate that there may be some 15,000 United Kingdom passport holders subject to immigration control in Kenya. Those who wish to come here may apply under existing arrangements for a special voucher, which entitles them to enter the United Kingdom, and we have no further steps in mind.
