§ 38. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what instructions he has issued to Departmental Ministers as to the conditions to be imposed on applicants for Government contracts.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Can the Financial Secretary at any rate confirm that he does not permit Departments to impose a "closed shop" as a condition of tender, although his right hon. Friend the Minister of Housing allows local authorities to do that?
§ Mr. MacDermot
If the right hon. Gentleman has any particular case in mind, I shall gladly look into it. I know of no such general direction.
