HC Deb 15 February 1968 vol 758 c1573
Q2. Mr. Chichester-Clark

asked the Prime Minister what instructions he has given as to the criteria which determine the placing of Ministerial names on the back of Government Bills.

The Prime Minister

None, Sir.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

As the name of the Minister of Public Building and Works appears on the back of the Industrial Expansion Bill, may we have an assurance that, after the serious effects of licensing and the S.E.T., there is no plan for him to intervene further in this industry?

The Prime Minister

I do not know how that arises from a Question about instructions regarding the criteria determining the putting of Ministers' names on the back of Government Bills, in which we are following exactly the same practice as our predecessors. The position regarding the construction industries following the statement on 16th January was explained in the debate in the House.
