HC Deb 20 October 1972 vol 843 cc147-8W
Mr. Whitehead

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will institute an inquiry into the use of official stationery from his Department for false and provocative circulars, purporting to be official, and concerning the proposed billeting of Uganda refugees on the recipients of the circulars.

Mr. Peter Walker

I share the hon. Member's concern about these misrepresentations, and confirm that the matter has been drawn to the attention of the police. There is no evidence, however, ways where lighting had not been installed

Mr. Peyton

Following are the figures

of my Department's or any other's headed paper having been used.

The official envelopes and labels do not appear to have come from my Department, but these items are often supplied by Departments for the return of replies from the public.
