§ 45. Sir J. POWER
asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to introduce legislation to make it illegal for any person or body corporate or unincorporate to receive from a foreign Government or organisation under the control of a foreign Government funds to be used for political purposes in this country?
§ Sir W. J0YNS0N-HICKS
I have been asked to reply. For the reasons explained by me last February in the Debate on the Second Reading of the Foreign Contributions (Interference with Trade and Industries) Bill, presented by my hon. Friend the Member for Swindon, His Majesty's Government do not propose to promote any legislation dealing with this subject.
§ 40. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the Prime Minister whether he proposes to introduce legislation for the purpose of making illegal any political organisation in this country which is directly or indirectly under the control of a foreign Government?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I have been asked to reply. No, Sir. As at present advised I do not think the resources of the State need to be reinforced in this way.
