asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many hon. Members sought stops on the removal of Kurdish people from Iraq who arrived in the United Kingdom on 5 May and 7 May.
I understand that three hon. Members expressed an interest in the case.
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received from the United Kingdom immigrants advisory service concerning the asylum application of Kurdish people from Iraq who have arrived in the United Kingdom since 5 May.
Since 3 May 1987 several groups of Iraqi Kurds have travelled from Syria, via West Germany, on Lufthansa flights with forged documents and claimed asylum on arrival in the United Kingdom. All had previously been living in camps in Iran. Officials from the Department have discussed the applications with representatives of the refugee unit of the United Kingdom Immigrants' Advisory Service.
