HC Deb 08 December 1958 vol 597 c4W
53. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent he authorised the statement issued by a spokesman of his Department on Mr. Randolph Churchill's articles on Suez.

58. Mr. Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs why the head of his Press department, Mr. Peter Hope, recently made a statement concerning the Press articles written by Mr. Randolph Churchill, concerning the Suez war; whether he will publish this statement in HANSARD; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Selwyn Lloyd

I take full responsibility for anything said by spokesmen of my Department. In this case the remarks were made by the spokesman in reply to a question put to him. They have been so widely quoted that I do not think it necessary to circulate them in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
