HC Deb 07 November 1983 vol 48 cc29-30W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of Slate for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs how many (a) applications for immigration and (b) inquiries about immigration to the Falkland Islands have been received in each month since January 1982; and how many immigrants arrived on the islands in each month.

India had suffered from the absence of a significant local cost element. These requirements are now met in that about two-thirds of the local costs funding may be linked with development projects and programmes involving British goods and services.

Mr. Whitney

Immigration is a matter for the Falkland Islands Government. I am consulting the Civil Commissioner as to what information is readily available and will write to the hon. Member.
