The Commonwealth and South Africa (13 Nov 1987)

Mr Bernie Grant: I am indebted to the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook) for bringing this good motion before the House. It is a pity that there are not more hon.

I note that business people have...

Orders of the Day — Immigration Bill (16 Nov 1987)
