Foster's pints

December 5, 1997

An assiduous attender at the Education and Employment Select Committee, Foster was late for Tuesday morning's session and, when called to ask questions, apologised to the witness and explained that "While I won't say where I was this morning, last night I was drinking beer for local PR purposes until the early hours."
