HC Deb 20 November 1985 vol 87 c172W
Mr. Malins

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to be able to reply to the letter of 25 October reference Mr. Miah TN3/RLE/6261/85; how long Mr. Miah has been in custody and in what places; when he expects to come to a decision in this case; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waddington

I have written to my hon. Friend.

Mr. Mohd Ashad Miah was detained at Harmondsworth from 15 to 24 October and at Ashford remand centre from 24 October to 16 November, when he made a voluntary departure.

My letter gives the reasons for the immigration officer's decision to refuse entry to Mr. Miah and my confirmation of that decision.
