HC Deb 08 August 1966 vol 733 cc255-6W
88. Sir C. Osborne

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, in view of the fact that 44,415 Commonwealth citizens subject to control under Part I of the Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1962 were admitted in June, 1966, and that the coloured population is estimated already to have reached two per cent. of the total, what proportion of Commonwealth immigrants it is Her Majesty's Government's policy to allow in future years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

The hon. Member's premises are misleading; but so far as Her Majesty's Government's policy is concerned, I would refer him to the White Paper "Immigration from the Commonwealth" (Cmnd. 2739) presented to Parliament in August, 1965.
