HC Deb 14 January 1993 vol 216 cc794-5W
16. Mr. Ian Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proportion of asylum applications from European countries were successful in the last year for which figures are available; and what was the figure for the EC as a whole.

Mr. Charles Wardle

The large majority of recent asylum applications from the former Yugoslavia are still under consideration. Of applications from other central and eastern European countries that were decided in the period January to November 1992, 3 per cent. were recognised as refugees under the 1951 UN convention and granted asylum. We do not have corresponding information on the outcome of such applications to other EC member states.
