HC Deb 31 March 1958 vol 585 c94W
83. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that until recently, at the instance of the Government of the United States of America, copies of the New York Times and of the New York Herald Tribune were supplied regularly to hon. Members, and that this supply has recently ceased; and, in view of the fact that this supply helped to keep hon. Members well-informed about the United States affairs and thereby helped to promote good will between Great Britain and the United States of America, if he will now request the United States Government to take steps to have that supply resumed.

Mr. Ian Harvey

No. We have all appreciated the value of this generous service but the decision to discontinue it is not a matter upon which Her Majesty's Government could properly address the United States Government.
