Are you aware, Mr. Speaker, that on Friday the High Court found against the Home Office and directed it to reconsider the case of a Tamil asylum seeker who had been refused leave by the Home Office to remain in Britain? This is a serious matter. Has there been any intimation from the Home Office that it intends to make a statement on its view of the High Court decision and the fate of the other Tamil asylum seekers at present living in Britain and who have some concern about their future?

I have had no notification of a statement, but I do know that there are to be Home Office questions on Thursday.
