HC Deb 09 June 1969 vol 784 c208W
Mr. Carol Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity to what extent her Department has studied the problem of young migrant workers as it would affect Italy and the United Kingdom on Great Britain joining the European Economic Community; and if her Department will sponsor a joint visit to Italy of representatives from appropriate British organisations with a view to engaging in the necessary forward planning in this field.

Mr. Harold Walker

My Department has taken part in a number of studies into the problems of migrant workers, and keeps under review the implications on the movement of workers between this country and Italy of a possible United Kingdom entry into the Common Market. I think, however, it is too early to consider whether a visit should be arranged for the purpose my hon. Friend suggests.
