Immigration Controls: Working Holidays

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate she has made of the number of people holding working holiday visas who wish to continue their current employment under the proposed points-based system. (196676)

Details on the number of working holiday makers granted leave to enter the UK are published annually within the Control of Immigration statistics. No record is kept of the employment of WHM during their stay nor their future employment intentions. Copies of the Immigration statistics are in the Library of both houses and can also be found at:

Any person wishing to transfer from the Working Holiday Scheme into the Points Based System will be expected to return home to make their application.
