HC Deb 26 July 1978 vol 954 cc732-3W
Mrs. Bain

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received from Strathclyde community relations council following the publication of the report "Appeal Dismissed"; and if he is satisfied with its current operation of appeals on behalf of any wives and dependants of Pakistanis and Indians resident within Strathclyde Region.

Mr. John

One of the authors of the report "Appeal Dismissed" is a community relations officer employed by the Strathclyde community relations council and he has been in regular touch with the Department about the contents of the report. Apart from some inevitable delays, I am not aware of any reason for dissatisfaction with the current operation of appeals in Strathclyde.
