§ 26. Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will publish in the Official Report a detailed list of the Secondary Legislation of the Rules, Regulations and Decisions of the European Economic Community which will affect his Department and its ministerial responsibilities; in what way each such piece of legislation will affect his departmental activities; and to what extent he has met, or intends to meet, persons concerned to discuss the effects of such legislation on matters falling within his ministerial responsibilities.
§ Mr. Lane
The Home Office has a primary interest in the instruments on free movement of persons in parts 9 and 10 of the Community Secondary Legislation and a general interest in a number of others. They will not have a major effect on my right hon. Friend's responsibilities. Consultation will be undertaken where necessary.
§ Mr. Lewis
I thank the hon. Gentleman for his reply on the first part of the Question. Can he give more detailed information on the other parts? We are concerned about the question of free 1655 movement, particularly if it might adversely affect British Commonwealth citizens. Perhaps the hon. Gentleman would give us details about how his Department will be affected by this legislation.
