asked the Prime Minister whether it is the policy of the Government to debar the employees of undertakings brought under public ownership and control from standing as candidates in municipal, county or local elections.

The Prime Minister

No, Sir.

Mr. Macmillan

Will the right hon. Gentleman take special precautions to call the attention of the Minister of Fuel and Power to the implications, public and private, arising out of his reply?

The Prime Minister

I am quite sure that my right hon. Friend is a diligent student of Hansard.
