HC Deb 17 July 1979 vol 970 cc434-5W
Mr. Alton

asked the Attorney-General if he will refer to the Director of Public Prosecution, with a view to prosecution of those responsible under race relations legislation, the contents of a letter, circulated under the city of Liverpool letterhead and in official envelopes, which purported to inform council tenants that they would be forced to accept Vietnamese refugees into their homes.

The Attorney-General

I have not seen the letter referred to, but if the hon. Member will let me have it and particulars of by whom it was received, I shall consider whether or not a police investigation into its source would serve a purpose.
