HC Deb 29 October 1970 vol 805 c171W
70. Mr. Wolrige-Gordon

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the number of officials duly qualified to deal with the numbers of visitors now coming to Great Britain; whether their instructions require them to make these visitors welcome; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Sharples

Although the complement of immigration officers has been increased in recent years, the continuing steep rise in passenger traffic has led to delays at some ports during the summer. Immigration officers have standing instructions to treat visitors with courtesy.
