§ Mr. N. Pannell
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the failure of the representations of the Secretary of State for the Colonies to the West Indian Governments to restrict migration to this country and the delay of the Secretary of State for the Home Department in completing his consideration of the matter, he will personally intervene to ensure that effective action is taken in the matter, which is giving rise to social problems in this country.
§ The Prime Minister
No. I see no need for me to intervene personally. My right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for the Home Department and for the Colonies have the matter under close and constant attention, and I have nothing to add to the replies given by the former on 7th and 14th July and by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies on 21st July.
