HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 c181W
17. Mr. Pitt

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether husbands of European Community citizens settled in the United Kingdom, who had limited leave to remain before the present immigration rules came into force, will be given further leave to remain when their present leave expires.

Mr. Waddington

Yes, provided they qualify to do so under the rules, which have not changed in this respect.
