Immigration: Independent Monitor for Entry Clearance

Volume 684: debated on Tuesday 11 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Triesman on 23 May (WA 94), when they will publish the report by Ms Fiona Lindsley, the former Independent Monitor for Entry Clearance, the final text of which was submitted to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office on 23 January; and what procedures they will introduce to minimise delays in the publication of documents resulting from ministerial changes.[HL6719]

Ms Lindsley's report is currently with my right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary for further consideration and will be laid before Parliament before the Summer Recess. In the future, the independent monitor will produce reports every six months, rather than annually. These will be published promptly.
