HC Deb 12 July 1990 vol 176 c319W
18. Mr. Archer

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department in how many cases foreign domestics have been found to be employed without a work permit in the last period of 12 months for which statistics are available.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

Work permits are not issued for domestic work, but as a concession outside the immigration rules a domestic servant may be allowed to come to the United Kingdom as part of the household of an employer for whom he or she has worked abroad. The statistics about people found to be here in breach of their conditions of stay do not identify domestics as a separate category.
