HC Deb 02 February 1987 vol 109 c477W
Mr. Best

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he will take to ban the proposed visit of members of Sinn Fein to Wales at the invitation of Cymdeithas yr Iaith, the Welsh Language Society; what representations he has received; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hurd

I have no power to ban such visits. I have received one letter asking me to consider the security implications of this visit.
