He served as chairman of the Selsdon Group 1983-1987, later becoming a Vice-President. In 1987, he served, briefly, as a member of Southampton City Council. In 1990, he became President of the London Swinton circle.

Janman was Vice-President of the Jordan is Palestine Committee, Joint Secretary of the Conservative backbench Employment Committee 1987-1988, Joint Vice-Chairman of same 1988-1992. He was a member of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Employment from 1989–1992, and Joint Secretary of the Conservative Backbench Home Affairs Committee, also from 1989–1992.

Janman was a member of the Conservative Monday Club and was present at their South Africa Dinner, given for Dr. Andries Treurnicht on 5 June 1989, (see The Daily Telegraph and The Independent Court & Social pages, 6 June 1989).

On 10 October 1989, Janman joined Nicholas Budgen, M.P., and Lord Moyne (in the chair) as speakers at a major fringe meeting organized by the Young Monday Club, heralded as "The End of the English? - Immigration and Repatriation". Janman was subsequently quoted by journalist Judy Jones in The Daily Telegraph as saying that "if you look at the lack of immigration control in the past, then yes, Britain has become the dustbin of the world". He added that there was a need to offer voluntary repatriation to members of ethnic minorities settled in the UK, which groups did not wish to integrate with the indigenous population.
