HC Deb 11 April 1986 vol 95 c195W
Mr. Tony Banks

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people attempting to enter the United Kingdom who were refused entry and detained were subsequently given admission, temporary or otherwise, on production of cash security by themselves or a sponsor in each of the past five years.

Mr. Waddington

On production of cash security, none.

The hon. Member may, however, have in mind the power of an adjudicator to grant bail, on entering into a recognizance, or in Scotland a bail bond, to a person who has been detained pending examination. Statistics of the number of such cases are not maintained.
