Before the hon. Gentleman moves off the apparently exhaustive list of those who are here, he missed out one group, which relates to the point made by the hon. Member for Bristol, East: people who have no right to be here, but whom the Government cannot remove from this country. They may well not be entitled to benefits and cannot work and are therefore left to destitution or criminality. I am reinforcing the point being made by the hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley: the situation is even more difficult than he is making out.
