asked the President of the Board of Trade, whether he has completed his further inquiries about the closure of the Exchange Telegraph's home and parliamentary news services; and what conclusion he has reached.

I have made careful inquiries, as a result of which it is clear that the closure of these services was unavoidable for economic reasons.I am satisfied that the alternative newsgathering services which are available are adequate to protect the public from any possible detriment.
