§ Mr. Alton
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, if he will give the cost in man-hours and money for promoting the Asylum and Immigration Bill in the current Session. 
§ Miss Widdecombe
At a rough estimate, work on the Bill is likely to take up 8,000 man-hours in the Home Office, at a cost of £210,000. This does not include work on the Bill by other interested Departments.
