HC Deb 16 January 1979 vol 960 c704W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the main areas of responsibility of his Department which are likely to be affected by the proposed enlargement of the EEC to include Spain, Portugal and Greece; and what special action is being taken within his Department to examine the problems which will arise.

Mr. Merlyn Rees

The main effect within the Home Office would probably be in connection with the administration of the Immigration Act 1971. We are considering what changes would be necessary as a consequence of enlargement.
