To ask the Secretary of State for Employment whether a decision has yet been made to continue after the current year the special annual quota of work permits for workers from the dependent territories whose level of skill is below that required by the general work permit scheme.

Yes. It has been decided that the quota for 1988 will be 200 — the same as this year. Within the figure of 200 no more than 150 permits will be allowed for any one territory.
