HC Deb 29 January 1971 vol 810 cc207-8W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Aviation Supply why a letter from his Department, dated 1st January, 1971, notifying the hon. Member for Bedford of a meeting to be held at the Royal Aircraft Establishment, on Wednesday, 6th January, did not reach him until 21st January.

Mr. David Price

I wrote to my hon. Friend on 31st December explaining that he would shortly receive a formal invitation to a meeting at R.A.E., Bedford, on 6th January.

I regret that this invitation from R.A.E., Bedford, dated January 1st was misdirected originally, but I understand that the establishment apologised for the error when my hon. Friend spoke to them by telephone on 4th January and that my hon. Friend did in fact attend the meeting.

Forward to
