HC Deb 27 April 1989 vol 151 c636W
Mr. Tony Lloyd

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the time taken to deal with interviews referred by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office concerning entry clearance in Manchester and London; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Renton

I would refer the hon. Member to my reply of 23 March, at column809, in answer to his earlier question. It remains the objective in Manchester and London, as elsewhere, to carry out interviews within three months of receipt of papers in the United Kingdom.
