§ 5. Mr. Kershaw
asked the Paymaster-General what proposals he will make for the better co-ordination of announcements of Government policy on immigration.
§ Mr. Kershaw
Is not that a very extraordinary reply? Does the Paymaster-General realise that his right hon. Friend the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs said that it was mad to limit immigration to this country? We know that it is the policy of the Cabinet to limit immigration. Does that mean that the Cabinet is mad, or that the First Secretary is mistaken?
§ Sir D. Renton
Will the right hon. Gentleman say how he is co-ordinating the information about the control of immigration by the Home Secretary and the Minister of Labour and the view of the First Secretary of State, which is to the effect that it would be mad to exercise such control? Unless he co-ordinates these statements the public will not be sensibly informed.
