HC Deb 03 February 1975 vol 885 c378W
Mr. Ryman

asked the Attorney-General what decision he has reached on the question whether to apply to the High Court of Justice for an injunction to restrain the Sunday Times newspaper from publishing or from causing the publication of the late Mr. Richard Crossman's memoirs; and what are the reasons for his decision.

The Attorney-General

It is apparent from the selection of excerpts which were published on Sunday 26th January and Sunday 2nd February that theSunday Times representatives have taken account of the views of the Secretary of the Cabinet, and indeed this was stated in the newspaper. So long as that continues to be the position, there is no reason for an application to the court.
