asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimates he has made of the number of persons born (a) in EEC countries other than the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, (b) in other foreign countries and (c) in Commonwealth countries, who enter the United Kingdom on Republic of Ireland passports or obtain Republic of Ireland passports after entry ; and if he will monitor such numbers by appropriate sampling.
