  • Description

    IN A TELEVISION INTERVIEW IN LONDON TONIGHT (MONDAY) CONSERVATIVE OPPOSITION LEADER MR. EDWARD HEATH REAFFIRMED THE "HARD STAND" HE HAS TAKEN DURING AN EARLIER WEEKEND SPEECH ON IMMIGRATION. IN HIS EARLIER SPEECH MR. HEATH HAD OUTLINED A FOUR-POINT WHEREBY COMMONWEALTH IMMIGRANTS WOULD HAVE THE SAME RIGHT OF ENTRY INTO BRITAIN AS NON-COMMONWEALTH CITIZENS, AND UNDER WHICH STRICTER SCREENING BE IMPOSED ON ALL IMMIGRANTS. TODAY THE BRITISH HOME SECRETARY, MR. JAMES CALLAGHAN, DESCRIBED MR. HEATH'S SPEECH AS "ONE OF THE MOST SHIFTY" HE HAD MADE.

    IN HIS INTERVIEW TONIGHT MR. HEATH WAS ASKED TO COMMENT ON MR. CALLAGHAN'S STATEMENT. MR. CALLAGHAN HAD ALSO CLAIMED THAT ALTHOUGH MR. HEATH'S PLAN SOUGHT TO PLACE CURBS ON COMMONWEALTH IMMIGRANTS IT WOULD DO NOTHING OF THE SORT.
