HC Deb 07 November 1979 vol 973 c227W
Mr. Michael Brown

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will list his engagements for Thursday 25 October.

Mr. Humphrey Atkins

I attended a Cabinet meeting at 9.30 on 25 October. From 2.30 I and my ministerial colleagues answered questions in the House, and at 3.30, after Prime Minister's questions, I made a statement on my plans for political progress in Northern Ireland. I then gave a number of interviews to press and television journalists. In the evening I attended a dinner given by the United States ambassador.
