Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people from(a) the European Union, (b) the Commonwealth and (c) other countries were refused entry in the UK during 2001. [35996]

I regret that the information requested is not currently available.

Statistics on the number of persons refused entry and subsequently removed by nationality are due to be published in the Command Paper "Control of Immigration Statistics 2001" later this year.
