HC Deb 18 February 1971 vol 811 cc531-2W
74. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been drawn to the view of the European Economic Community Commission that Commonwealth citizens acquiring British citizenship should not necessarily have the same rights as other British citizens to enter the labour markets of the wider Community, should Great Britain become a member of the European Economic Com- munity; and whether he intends to seek to amend the Race Relations Act in order to impose this discrimination.

Mr. Maudling

I am not aware that the Commission has expressed such a view. Discussions with the E.E.C. on this topic are still in progress.
