[number removed]
Ring George Scolt to put your question in person to The Rt Hen Enoch Powell MP
To promote a maximum flow of questions, [number removed] (12 lines) will take them from 6.30 pm onward, as well as while the programme is on the air.
Produced by WALTER WALLICH who writes: 'One of the nice things about this programme is that you never know who will ring in next. There was the lady from Le Havre in France on our first programme, a call from Malnao in Sweden on another. When 11-year-old James Lazarus rang from Hampstead to ask Mr Callaghan whether, if Mr Wilson resigned as Labour Party leader, he would be a candidate, we rang James's mother to make sure he'd be allowed to stay up to put his question.'
