§ Sir David Knox
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what percentage of applications made by foreign visitors to bring their overseas domestic workers with them on visits to the United Kingdom since 9 December 1994 have been turned down at British consulates abroad on the ground that they fail to comply with the new arrangements for the admission of overseas domestic workers announced on that date. 
§ Mr. Baldry
Comprehensive figures for the number of overseas domestic workers granted entry clearance are not kept. Such figures as are kept cover six-month periods. I will let the hon. Member have the figures for the period 1 January to 30 June 1995 as soon as these are available.
