§ 11. Mr. Roderick
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has for official meetings with Members of Parliament representing Welsh constituencies.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
I have no specific plans. As the hon. Member will know, it gives me the greatest pleasure to meet Welsh Members and I am always willing to arrange meetings when requested.
§ Mr. Roderick
Following the example set by the Minister for Industry in arranging a meeting with his parliamentary colleagues, may I ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman to do likewise, because I understand from the reports in the Western Mail on 9th June that some profitable decisions could arise from the meeting which the Minister for Industry held with his colleagues? If 9 this is the way in which we are to have profitable decisions for Wales, will the Secretary of State take such initiatives?
§ Mr. Thomas
I am very happy to consider any suggestions for a meeting which may be put to me by my colleagues on both sides of the House. As I said, I am always willing to meet hon. and right hon. Gentlemen whenever they request such a meeting.
