HC Deb 24 October 1961 vol 646 cc722-3
26. Miss Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if, in view of the inadequate reporting and publishing of proceedings in the previous legislatures of Malta, he will clearly state in the new Constitution precise rules governing the preparation and publication of the Official Report.

Mr. Maudling

While it is appropriate to provide in a Constitution for the keeping of official records, I think that detailed regulations covering reporting and publication would be more appropriately dealt with in rules made by the Maltese Legislative Assembly.

Miss Vickers

May I thank my right hon. Friend for that Answer and express the hope that adequate opportunities will be given and that also there will be adequate legal advice?
