HC Deb 05 July 1993 vol 228 cc10-1W
Mrs. Roche

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many asylum seekers have been denied access to the United Kingdom's asylum procedures on third country grounds in the past 12 months and been subsequently removed from this country; and how many of these were subsequently returned by the third country to the United Kingdom.

Mr. Charles Wardle

In 1992, 441 port asylum applicants—excluding dependants—were removed from the United Kingdom following refusal of their application on the ground that they had arrived from a safe third country. Information on cases subsequently returned by the third country is not recorded.
