Do I understand from that that since he has been in office the right hon. Gentleman has done nothing, for example, to co-ordinate information services for overseas correspondents, of whom there are a large number in this country? In view of the publicity given to his activities by the weekend Press, may I ask whether he has told foreign and domestic home correspondents anything at all about what he has been doing with the security services? Is it not about time that he gave a little more information about his job and that he ought at least to come clean with the House?
I am not responsible for what appears in the weekend Press about my activities. If the hon. Member is really interested, he should address his remarks to the Conservative Central Office concerning my activities. If he will be good enough to look at the reply given by the Prime Minister on 12th November, 1964, printed in col. 1186 of the OFFICIAL REPORT, he will get all the information he wants.
I suggest that the hon. and learned Member should address his questions to the Chairman of the Conservative Party, who seems to have some responsibility for the publicity about my activities. Apart from that, if his question is serious I suggest that he should put down a Question to the Prime Minister.
On a point of order. The right hon. Gentleman has consistently referred to an Answer given by the Prime Minister on 12th November, which states that the Paymaster-General will answer Questions in the House about coordination of information services. So far we have had absolutely no answer from him at all.
My recollection is that the Answer related to co-ordination of home information services. The only complaint that would arise would be of an inadequate answer. That is not a point for me.
