Her Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of India concerning the decision to refuse entry on 17 July to pupils and staff from Poynton High School who had intended to visit projects supported by the charity India Direct.
We were made aware of this case only after the pupils and staff from Poynton High School had returned to the UK. It would appear that the group had the wrong category of visa for their trip. This is therefore a matter for the Indian authorities.
We have, however, attempted to make contact with the Head Teacher from Poynton High School, and the Member for Macclesfield (David Rutley). We have also lodged an enquiry with the Indian High Commission in London to try and help the school establish what category of visa they should re-apply for.
