HC Deb 07 December 1983 vol 50 c160W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many of the 617 persons in Vietnam to whom visa promise letters were issued have been admitted to the United Kingdom for permanent settlement.

Mr. Waddington

I regret that the information requested is not available centrally. Once a visa promise letter has been issued the arrangements for communicating the decision to the applicants in Vietnam and arranging arrival in the United Kingdom are normally handled by the voluntary refugee agencies and the United Nations High Commission for Refugees.
