§ Mr. Shersby
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is his most recent estimate of the number of bogus marriages solemnised in the United Kingdom during the most recent 12-month period for which figures are available.
§ Mr. Charles Wardle
The number of bogus marriages identified in the course of enforcing the immigration law is not collected centrally. More generally, the incidence of bogus marriages is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health.
