HC Deb 12 April 1973 vol 854 c1498
Ql. Mr. Lipton

asked the Prime Minister if he will pay an official visit to Hounslow.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Edward Heath)

I have at present no plans to do so, Sir.

Mr. Lipton

When the Prime Minister decides to visit Hounslow, where London Airport is situated, will he make a point of not going to that hotel which used his likeness without authority for the purpose of a cheap advertising gimmick, unless and until he receives a wholehearted apology from the smart-alec advertisers who were guilty of this intrusion?

The Prime Minister

I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his concern. I have received unqualified apologies from the Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Times Newspapers, the advertising agents, and their clients. I have accepted these, and I do not propose to take the matter further.

Mr. Dan Jones

When is the Prime Minister likely to redeem his promise to visit Burnley and North-East Lancashire—

Mr. Speaker

Order. The Question refers to a visit to Hounslow.

The Prime Minister

I am unlikely to go via Hounslow.
