asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will consider publishing statistics of all dependants of immigrants entering the United Kingdom on a quarterly basis as is at present the practice with regard to spouses of immigrants admitted for settlement.
Comprehensive statistics of admissions for settlement are already given in the Press notice which we issue each quarter, and the category "Other Commonwealth" in Table 2 is composed almost entirely of Commonwealth dependants.
