HC Deb 06 April 1978 vol 947 c206W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs why he will not give for the longest and most convenient period of time since he became Foreign Secretary the number of photographs of himself he has had printed, the number signed and circulated, to whom, at what costs to public funds and the reasons for the photographs.

Mr. Luard

My right hon. Friend sees no reason to do so. It would involve a disproportionate effort, and it is longstanding practice that official photographs of Ministers are made available, in particular for use overseas and for presentation on official visits abroad.
