HC Deb 26 July 1960 vol 627 c138W
Mr. Osborne

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the fact that the West Indian Governments have refused the request of Her Majesty's Government to limit immigration from their territories into the United Kingdom, if he will now, as Government policy, enforce a standstill on all immigration for two years, or until such social problems as housing, health and unemployment amongst immigrants have been solved; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler

While not underestimating the difficulties, I do not accept all the implications of my hon. Friend's Question. At the moment I have nothing to add to what I said on 14th July in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Liverpool, Kirkdale (Mr. N. Pannell).
