HC Deb 29 March 1971 vol 814 c291W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department to what extent Great Britain's entry into the Common Market on the basis of the existing Treaty of Rome will enable persons within the Six and eventually the Ten to settle in the United Kingdom freely; and how this will affect the existing and proposed laws on aliens and immigration.

Mr. Sharples

The main category of E.E.C. nationals acquiring the right to settle here would be workers who, after some years residence, retired or became incapacitated. Whether an amendment of the law would be required would be considered at the time.
