§ Mr. Tony Lloyd
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what was the date on which the papers relating to the family of KMA (Ref. No. K362905/3) were received by his Department; and when he expects to have processed this case and advised the Foreign and Commonwealth Office of his conclusions.
§ Mr. Renton
I regret that when I wrote to the hon. Member on 13 January I was not aware that the referral papers had been received in the Home Office on 5 December but were not linked with the file. The entry clearance officer in Bombay was instructed on 25 January to issue suitable entry clearance.
