Biographical / Historical

During the late 1950's Pole had interviewed the administrators of some of the American human rights commissions which monitored and administered employment and human rights policies for the immigrant population. In the early 1960's he joined a committee which sat in the House of Commons under the chairmanship firstly of Fenner Brockway and then Maurice Orbach. The object of this committee was to work out the principles of a British anti-discrimination law, and a bill was drafted and introduced to Parliament in the late 1960's, foreshadowing the Race Relations Act passed by the Labour Government under Harold Wilson.
