HC Deb 16 July 1992 vol 211 c981W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Bosnian and Croatian refugees have been accepted in the United Kingdom to date.

Mr. Charles Wardle

About 1,100 citizens of the former state of Yugoslavia have sought asylum in the United Kingdom between December 1991 and the end of June this year on the basis of claims associated with the various conflicts in that area. The large majority of these applications are still under consideration. Separate figures for the numbers from Bosnia or Croatia are not readily available.
