§ Mr. Deakins
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why Mr. Dikko was admitted as a visitor to the United Kingdom; why the immigration officer did not conclude on his arrival that he would be unlikely to leave the United Kingdom at the conclusion of his visit; and what attitude will be taken to any application to extend the period of his visit.
§ Mr. Waddington
Mr. Dikko was admitted as a visitor on his most recent arrival because the immigration officer was satisfied that he qualified for entry under the published immigration rules. Any application for an extension of stay will be considered in the light of all the circumstances obtaining at the time.
§ Mr. Winnick
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the immigration authorities knew of the accusations made against Al-haji Dikko by the Nigerian authorities when he last arrived in the United Kingdom and was given permission to stay for six months; and if he will make a statement.
