Volume 464: debated on Thursday 11 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs when he plans to answer the letter of 6 August from the right hon. Member for Manchester, Gorton on Mr. M. K. J. Iqbal. (156908)

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office's ministerial support unit telephoned my right hon. Friend's office at the House on 20 August to request that his letter of 6 August be sent again, as the enclosures referred to in this letter were missing. A further letter was not received.

Officials from UKvisas subsequently telephoned my right hon. Friend's office on 9 October to confirm that Mr. M. K. J. Iqbal’s wife had successfully appealed against her refused visa application, which was overturned on 20 September. It was agreed that a written reply would not be necessary.
