§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will publish the text of the apology which he sent to the Royal College of Nursing or give the number of words in the telex; and how much per word is paid for telex messages sent by his Department.
§ Mr. Ennals
The telexed letter which I sent to the president of the Royal College of Nursing at the meeting of its representative body in Harrogate was released to the Press; I have now arranged for a copy of my speech, the telegram from the Royal College and my reply to be placed in the Library. It is not possible to calculate the cost per word of telex messages sent by my Department.
