HC Deb 09 March 1987 vol 112 c27W
Mr. Litherland

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the number and country of origin of persons seeking asylum over the past 10 years; and what percentage were accepted.

Mr. Waddington

The available information on applications and decisions by nationality is for the years 1979 to 1985 and was published in tables 1 and 5A–5F of Home Office statistical bulletin "Refugee Statistics, United Kingdom 1985", issue 12/86. It is hoped to publish corresponding figures for 1986 around the end of April.
