HC Deb 29 June 1967 vol 749 cc132-3W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs, in view of the fact that in the 10 years from 1975 to 1985 the coloured population in Great Britain will increase from 1,500,000 to 3,500,000, if he will seek to amend the Empire Settlement Act so as to provide free passages abroad for those who wish to go.

Mr. Bowden

No. The time for any amendment to the Commonwealth Settlement Act would be in 1972 when it will be due for renewal.
