asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why he refused an entry visa to Ricardo Yanez Espinoza who had been detained in one of the concentration camps in Chile, and who applied to come to the United Kingdom following the closure of this camp last November and is now in hiding in Chile.

When an application was made on Sr. Yanez' behalf and, subsequently, when notice of appeal against the refusal of that application was lodged, there was no indication that his case fell into one of the categories for admission. If my hon. Friend has more up-to-date information on the position of Sr. Yanez, I am willing to consider it.
