HC Deb 20 December 1984 vol 70 c289W
54. Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the present waiting time for interview for applicants for quota vouchers in India.

Mr. Waddington

Waiting times for new applicants are not forecast, because they may be affected substantially by unforseen development. However, apart from cases dealt with urgently on compassionate grounds, persons offered vouchers in India at the end of October 1984 had waited seven years 10 months in the queue.
