Entry Clearances: Domestic Service

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many domestic worker visas were issued by his Department in each year since 1987, broken down by country of origin. (125428)

I have been asked to reply.

As the information requested by my right hon. Friend is lengthy I have arranged for a copy to be sent to my right hon. Friend and a copy will also be placed in the Library of the House.

My right hon. Friend should note the Foreign and Commonwealth Office electronic resources only go as far back as 1998 for domestic worker visas and that the database did not provide reliable data until 2004. Data prior to this date cannot be guaranteed to be 100 per cent. accurate.
