HC Deb 04 July 1985 vol 82 c235W
55. Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many representations he has received about the decision of the European Court of Human Rights on Her Majesty's Government's immigration rules; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waddington

We had received at 2 July about 125 written representations arising out of the Court's decision, the great majority in favour of maintaining firm immigration control. The Government are urgently reviewing the options for amending the immigration rules to comply with the court's judgment and will announce their decision as soon as possible.
