To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many of the Tamils who were disembarked at London airport subsequent to undressing(a) have since left the United Kingdom, (b) have been allowed leave to enter or (c) have cases still under consideration.

Mr. Renton

Decisions have been taken in respect of four of the 64 Tamils in question. One of those concerned has been refused asylum and returned to Sri Lanka; the other three, who have also been refused asylum, have applied for judicial review of the decision. The case is currently before the House of Lords. Decisions on the following 60 cases are awaiting the judgment in that case.
