To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what is his policy in respect of the faxing of press releases on the day of release to Opposition party spokesmen; what changes have been introduced since 1 May; and if he will make a statement. [16301]

Scottish Office press releases are not faxed on the day of release to Opposition party spokesmen. Copies of the press releases are, however, mailed on the day of release to the Scottish headquarters of the four main political parties in Scotland. This was the position prior to 1 May and I have no plans to change these arrangements.
