§ 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.
