32. Mr. MALONE
asked the Prime Minister what Department is responsible for the display of posters now displayed throughout the country containing appeals from Lord Haig and himself concerning the miners' question; what cost was involved in publishing these statements; whether the money was provided from public funds?
In putting the question, I would like to point out that the words "ex parte appeals calculated to prejudice the miners' case" have been struck out of the question, and other words substituted.
§ Sir R. HORNE
I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary gave in reply to a similar question by the hon. Member for Workington on the 25th October. I accept full responsibility for the publication of the Prime Minister's message to the nation.
