HC Deb 21 March 1968 vol 761 c135W
59. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he proposes to limit the size and scale of demonstrations in the Metropolitan Police area, and to check the visits of trouble-makers from foreign countries.

Mr. Taverne

My right hon. Friend will keep the situation under review, but he has no power to limit the size of demonstrations. As regards the second part of the Question, any foreign national seeking entry could be excluded if he had behaved badly on a previous occasion, or if there was reason to believe that his entry would increase the difficulty of maintaining law and order.
