HC Deb 17 March 1993 vol 221 c251W
Mr. Madden

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the entry clearance applications of Mrs. Khadija Bibi—Ref.: IMM/78676—and her children were referred to his Department by the United Kingdom post in Islamabad; when a decision will be taken on these applications; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Charles Wardle

[holding answer 11 March 1993]: Mrs. Khadija Bibi and seven children were refused entry clearances by the entry clearance officer in Islamabad on 4 October 1990. They appealed against the decision. The appeal hearing was listed for 18 September 1992 but was adjourned by the immigration appellate authority. In February 1993 Mrs. Bibi's representative sent the immigration department further evidence about the relationship between Mrs. Bibi and four of the children. This has now been considered and the entry clearance officer is being authorised to issue entry clearance to these applicants.
