    Q.. "Mr. Jordan, the organization sees the increase in the coloured population as a problem. How do you propose to combat this problem?".



    A.. "We want to combat this problem by removing it completely Firstly by stopping all further coloured immigration into Britain and secondly by sending back with every humane consideration all the coloured immigrants already here. Otherwise if the present rate of coloured immigrants continues we shall have no less than six million in 20 years time, with all the problems then that South Africa and the U.S.A. are experiencing today".

    Background: Colin Jordan, organizer of the white Defence League - interviewed by VISNEWS May 30 at the League's headquarters, Notting Hill, London, called for the cessation of further coloured immigration and "humane" deportation of immigrants already living in this country.

    If the present rate of coloured immigrants continued, he added, Britain would have six million immigrants in 20 years time, he claimed this would bring them "all the problems that South Africa and America are experiencing today".

    The White Defence League, run by the Right-Wing National Labour Party, has its headquarters in the heart of Notting Hill, London's worst racial trouble-spot. Tension flared up recently over the murder of Kelso Cochrane, a West Indian, May 17.

    The League is in no way connected with the Labour Party.
