To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he has taken to introduce a standardised form of passport visa stamp.

Responsibility for the format of visa stamps rests with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. My officials are consulted about the inclusion of safeguards against forgery. I understand that the possibility of introducing a single format, stick-in visa for the United Kingdom at all overseas posts is now under active consideration, although no final decision has been taken.
