asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list under country of origin the number of refugees, students, visitors and others whom he has asked to leave the country voluntarily during the past 12 months.

There have been instances during this time where students, visitors and others, who have overstayed, have been asked to leave the country. But I regret that detailed information about the numbers and countries of origin of such people are not available.
