HC Deb 31 January 2000 vol 343 c781 3.30 pm
Mr. Kevin Barron (Rother Valley)

On a point of order, Madam Speaker. Has there been any indication that the House will hear a statement by a Minister from the Department of Trade and Industry on the allegations in today's newspapers about tobacco smuggling and British American Tobacco—in particular, that its financial director, Mr. Keith Dunt, has been heavily involved in co-ordinating smuggling and tax evasion?

Madam Speaker

I have not been informed by Ministers that they seek to make a statement on that issue today.
