HC Deb 20 February 1969 vol 778 c758
Q3. Mr. Winnick

asked the Prime Minister if he will place in the Library a copy of his speech on a number of Government policies, on a public occasion, in London on Monday 27th January, 1969.

The Prime Minister

There was no public speech, Sir. I did answer a number of Press questions, on the record.

Mr. Winnick

Is the Prime Minister aware that his remarks in repudiating the Leader of the Opposition's disgraceful speech on Commonwealth immigration were most welcome? Will the Prime Minister give a firm undertaking that the Government will resist to the full the Powellite frenzy which is being built up opposite on the basis of the speech, in which the whole position of Commonwealth immigration and the dependants of those immigrants living here is under attack?

The Prime Minister

Our position on that is well known in the House. Concerning the speech about which I was asked questions, that, like a speech this week, was capitalising a real concern about a real problem while at the same time cashing in on scabrous prejudices, for which the right hon. Gentleman can feel nothing but contempt, by pretending to have a policy which inflames the passions and contributing nothing to the solution of the problem.
