To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to his answer of 9 June 2003, Official Report, columns 659–60W, on Afghan refugees, when he intends to remove the remaining people. [121804]

[holding answer 26 June 2003]: There was regrettably a typographical error in the answer of 9 June which significantly changed its intended meaning.
