Immigration White Paper - Statement (5 Feb 2018)

Lord Kennedy of Southwark: ...Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Answer to the Question given in the other place by the Immigration Minister.

But as the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich,...

Lord Lea of Crondall: ...complement the Commons amendment. Some of us hope to table that amendment with the Public Bill Office tomorrow, and later we will put some flesh on its bones.
