§ Mr. Lawson
asked the Prime Minister how many libel writs he has issued since taking office as Prime Minister in March 1974 which affect the submission of his evidence to the Royal Commission on the Press; and how many of such writs are still outstanding.
§ The Prime Minister
There is no ministerial responsibility for these civil proceedings and I have nothing further to add to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Blackpool, South (Mr. Blaker) on 20th October.
