Visa staff at our visa section in Cairo have no record of receiving a letter from the hon. Member concerning Miss Abdalla. The only letter from the hon. Member visa staff have seen was part of an appeal bundle received from the applicant, addressed to the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal in the UK. The AIT is independent of the UK Border Agency and handles its own correspondence.
