asked the Prime Minister if he will now dismiss the Secretary of State for Industry.
The scheme is restricted by statute to persons who are not patrial and to members of their families and households.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will now state the Government's policy on the voluntary and compulsory repatriation of members of ethnic minorities.
Use is made in appropriate cases of the powers of deportation and removal contained in the Immigration Act 1971. Except in such circumstances, Her Majesty's Government are firmly opposed to the use of compulsion or inducement to secure the repatriation of members of ethnic minorities. Assistance will, however, continue to be given under existing arrangements to those who wish to go to live abroad and in whose best interests it is to do so.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many men, women and children who are members of ethnic minorities in the United Kingdom have been compulsorily repatriated during each of the last three years for which figures are available; how many were deportations for illegal entry; how many for criminal offences; and how many for other reasons.
No one has been compulsorily repatriated. If my hon. Friend means deported or removed as an illegal entrant, the following is the information immediately available:
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider dismissal of the Secretary of State for Industry.
asked the Prime Minister if he will dismiss the Secretary of State for Industry.
