To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the percentage increase of numbers of applications for leave to remain to his Department excluding asylum applications from 1990 to 1991, 1991 to 1992, 1992 to 1993 and 1993 to 1994.
§ Mr. Nicholas Baker
The figures which are available on applications include some dependants who cannot be separately identified at that stage and are therefore not consistent from year to year. The percentage changes of decisions taken on principal applicants are given in the table.
