To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to enable Mr.Patrick Duncan Erasmus (Home Office Reference No. E1008322) to have his passport returned to him for the period 5 to 21 February, and then be allowed back into the UK to continue his appeal against refusal to allow him the right to remain in this country on the basis of his marriage.

The Immigration and Nationality Directorate wrote to Mr. Erasmus on 25 January, informing him of the outcome of his marriage application and Mr. Erasmus's passport was returned to him on the same date.

If Mr. Erasmus leaves the United Kingdom before his appeal is determined, it will be taken that he has withdrawn his appeal. If he then wished to return to the United Kingdom he would have to apply for entry clearance in accordance with the Immigration Rules.
