HC Deb 21 February 1972 vol 831 c228W
Mr. Ashton

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will cease the practice of addressing hon. Members who belong to Her Majesty's Opposition by their Christian names when answering letters on controversial issues, as this causes offence to their constituents.

Mr. Prior

This has always been regarded as a matter left to the discretion of the correspondents.
