HC Deb 16 February 1971 vol 811 cc434-5W
Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what official briefings he has given to the Press since the 18th June, 1970; which papers were involved and what subjects were discussed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Thomas

None. I have, however, given interviews to journalists in Wales and in London whenever such requests have been made, and I attach great value to this.

I am fully conscious of the important part played by the newspapers and journals of Wales in keeping the public informed of Governmental action and decisions.
