§ Mr. Renton
The grounds on which a person might claim asylum are varied and it is not possible to identify the number of occasions on which a claim of threatened execution was a principal factor in the decision to allow an individual to remain in the United Kingdom. Information on the outcome of all applications for asylum from Iraqi nationals decided in each year from 1979 to 1986 is given in tables 2 to 4 of the Home Office statistical bulletin "Refugee Statistics, United Kingdom, 1986" (Issue No. 13/87).
The numbers of Iraqi national, deported in each of the last five years were:
Numbers 1982 5 1983 2 1984 2 1985 2 1986 1
Those deported had not necessarily applied for asylum. Information is not available on the country of destination of persons deported but it is normally the country of which the person is a national.
