Mr. Morgan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his answer of 23 November,Official Report, column 291–92, if he will specify the immigration rules relating to private medical treatment; if he will list the applications received by his Department from the International Organisation for Migration the Child Advocacy International for children to be brought from former Yugoslavia, indicating a date and the number of children; and if he will make a statement. [3386]

Mr. Kirkhope

In order to qualify under the immigration rules for private medical treatment in the United Kingdom, an applicant must demonstrate that satisfactory arrangements for the treatment have been made, that there are sufficient private funds available to meet the costs of the treatment, and that he intends to leave the United Kingdom at the end of the treatment.

The arrangements between International Organisation for Migration and Child Advocacy International concern the evacuation of nationals of Bosnia-Herzegovina, who require visas in order to travel to the United Kingdom. Visa applications must be made at a British diplomatic post abroad, which is a matter for my right hon. Friend and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs.
