HC Deb 28 November 1961 vol 650 cc38-9W
81. Miss Lee

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations if he is aware that Mr. Nehru, Prime Minister of India, has publicly stated that as a consequence of the Commonwealth Immigrants Bill he does not want a single Indian to emigrate to Great Britain; and, in, view of the injury this does to Indo-British friendship, what steps he is taking to restore good relations.

Mr. Sandys

The hon. Lady is no doubt referring to remarks by Mr. Nehru to the Press on 20th November. Since he is reported to have said that he had no particular comment to make on the Commonwealth Immigrants Bill, I cannot accept the implication in the first part of the Question.
