D. immigration and warfare
I think it's C

4/ A group of ministers invited by the Prime Minister to attend regular meetings to discuss policies is the _____
I think it's the Cabinet Ministers

5/ It was during Henry VIII's reign that the Reformation took place, and his break with the Roman Church was an issue of religious belief (True/ False? Why?)
I think it's False because the King just wanted to divorce but the Pope refused, so Henry ended contact with the Church

can one of the multitude of mod's on this forum nob this thread off to the general ignorance and drivel section.
this area of the forum is for proper subjects such as Thunderbirds and Captain scarlet chat,
Daleks still being a specialist subject of course.
