HC Deb 30 October 1985 vol 84 cc548-9W
Mr. Iain Mills

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the numbers detected at all United Kingdom airports in the categories of illegal immigrant and criminals for 1983 and 1984, through checks made by immigration officials.

Mr. Waddington

Information is not available in the form requested. However, the total numbers of passengers refused leave to enter the United Kingdom are published annually by Nationality in "Control of Immigration Statistics, United Kingdom" (Table 1 of Cmnd. 9544 for the 1984 figures and 9246 for 1983).
