HC Deb 05 February 1963 vol 671 c41W
77. Mrs. Castle

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he is now in a position to reply to the petition of the Malta Labour Party against the Broadcasting Ordinance in Malta; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Sandys

A despatch is on its way to the Governor conveying my decision and it will no doubt be conveyed to the petitioner very soon. In the meanwhile it would not be proper for me to disclose its contents. I shall be pleased to do so if the hon. Member cares to put down a Question for answer a little later on.
