HC Deb 16 March 1964 vol 691 cc111-2W
42. Mr. Biggs-Davison

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent members of Her Majesty's Embassies abroad are required to attend in their official capacity at Press conferences held by visiting Members of Parliament; and whether it is the practice to keep records of such conferences.

Mr. R. A. Butler

A member of the Embassy would normally attend a Press conference held by a visiting Member of Parliament when the conference had been arranged by the Embassy.

The Embassy would decide in each case whether a record of the conference should be taken.
