HC Deb 16 July 1984 vol 64 c20W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he has received any requests for political asylum from political leaders from Zimbabwe.

Mr. Waddington

In 1983, 16 applications for asylum were received from Zimbabwean nationals. A further seven have been received so far this year. I shall write to my hon. Friend when the individual files have been examined.
