HC Deb 23 July 1959 vol 609 cc166-7W
Sir L. Ungoed-Thomas

asked the Attorney-General the grounds upon which he refused to sanction a prosecution in respect of the publication of the Economist of the 20th June, 1959, without the name and address of its printer.

The Attorney-General

Having regard to all the circumstances of the case, and in particular to the fact that the name of the publisher appeared on the face of the edition, I decided that it was not necessary in the public interest to institute proceedings.
