HC Deb 13 November 1970 vol 806 c280W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretry of State for Scotland how many official Press statements have been released by the Scottish Office containing information on changes in Government policies since 27th October; and if he will send a copy of each Press statement to the hon. Member for South Ayrshire.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

The text of a speech I made in Aberdeen on 6th November, relating to the proposals in the White Paper on Investment Incentives, was given to the Press. Otherwise I cannot identify any official press notice that might answer the hon. Member's description.

It is not normal practice for press notices to be sent to hon. Members other than to those who are working journalists and who have requested this service. Copies of all press notices issued by the Scottish Information Office are, however, sent to the headquarters of the main political parties.
