HC Deb 31 July 1972 vol 842 c33W
Mr. Kilfedder

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the letter sent by his Under-Secretary on 7th July, 1972 to the hon. Member for Down, North, in which he gave further information about the publication, "The Terror and the Tears".

Mr. David Howell

Yes. The letter sent to the hon. Member was as followsIn my reply of 3rd July 1972 to your question about The Terror and the Tears, tabled for written answer on 23rd June, I said that stocks of the publication for sale to the public were exhausted by 12th June. I very much regret that there was an inaccuracy in this answer. The first sentence of my reply should read: 'By that date stocks for distribution to the public were exhausted, all remaining copies being held for official purposes'. The Terror and the Tears is, of course, a Northern Ireland Government publication and is distributed free.
