§ Mr. Spearing
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to his answer of 28 November,Official Report, column 659, concerning the bodies from which he sought information, or had consultations concerning current asylum and immigration problems, if he will place in the Library a list of the 23W organisations he then referred to, distinguishing those from which he sought information or with which he had consultations, respectively. 
§ Mr. Kirkhope
The discussions referred to in my previous reply are generally ad hoc rather than in the nature of formal consultations. Information about them could be collated in the form requested only at disproportionate cost.
