HC Deb 18 December 1945 vol 417 c1114
70. Flight-Lieutenant Haire

asked the Minister of Information whether he will consider issuing to the Press each day for publication the "Today in Parliament "talks, broadcast by the B.B.C. each evening.

Mr. E. J. Williams

It is not for me to suggest how the Press should report proceedings in Parliament. Subject to suitable acknowledgement the B.B.C. would welcome publication of their "Today in Parliament" talks, but the Press have their own Parliamentary correspondents and none too much space.

Mr. Wilson Harris

Is the Minister aware that it is much more important to the Press to have more paper to print Parliament on than to have more Parliament to print on limited supplies of paper?

Mr. Williams

I think I referred to that in my answer.

Mr. De la Bèr

Why not do something about it?

Mr. Speaker

I cannot permit these constant interruptions.
