HC Deb 24 June 1974 vol 875 c324W
Mr. Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will set a limit on the number of immigrants entering the United Kingdom in any one year.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

No. I do not believe that it would be right to seek to control immigration by the crude imposition of numerical limits. We shall maintain a firm but humane control.
