HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c15W
Mr. Sedgemore

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a speech in Hackney on how to bring about good community relations.

Mr. Waddington

In a speech in Bradford on 22 July, my right hon. and learned Friend emphasised the importance that he attaches to the promotion of good race relations and outlined the approach that he intended to adopt in carrying out our responsibilites in this area. He will be ready on suitable occasions in future to make speeches in a similar sense, but he has, at present, no plans to visit Hackney for this purpose.
