§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether the interview granted to the editor of a Gibraltarian newspaper by Sir William Jackson, present governor of Gibraltar, was made with his approval; and whether the fact that the governor made political comments on the Gibraltar-Spanish situation is a change from the practice of previous governors.
§ Sir Ian Gilmour
The governor has accorded long background interviews to a number of Gibraltar newspapers. This procedure has my general approval. The contents of the interviews are not, and in the nature of things could not be, cleared in advance.
