HC Deb 18 February 1971 vol 811 cc532-3W
81. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the National Council for Civil Liberties and the Committee on United Kingdom Citizenship have claimed advanced knowledge of proposed legislation on immigration; and whether he will institute an inquiry to establish how and why the information was disclosed.

Mr. Sharples

My right hon. Friend has not been able to establish the origin of Press reports about the content of the Bill which will soon be published, except that many of them appear to be based on inaccurate speculation.
