Example text

Ministers repeated that, as British subjects, West Indians had every right to come and work in Britain and that, while there, they should receive the same protection from the law as anyone else. The Colonial Office opened new files entitled 'West Indian Migrant Workers in England'. The choice of this title seems in retrospect to reveal an unwillingness to accept that most of the newcomers were likely to be settlers rather than temporary residents, but at the time the choice was not unreasonable since many West Indian workers had previously returned to their homelands after working overseas in North and Central America.

Technological change and industrial reorganization were vital concerns which immigration seemed to have facilitated. In retrospect, of course, this argument loses some of its force. Had it been appreciated that technological change was going to reduce the demand for labour so much, other means of industrial reorganization might have been tried.

While attempts have been made in the twentieth century to increase equality of opportunity, Britain is far from offering the same opportunities to the child of the manual worker and the child of the professional as to the child of the company director.

For an immigrant minority to establish a bargaining agency, especially a minority that has not brought an institutional structure with it, is very difficult - but difficult by comparison with what? People with shared interests in the majority population cannot easily pursue those interests unless they can form a pressure group and persuade one or more political groups to take up their cause. The political process can be seen as one of bargaining in which parties sacrifice some of their objectives in order to obtain others which are of greater value to them.
