§ Mr. W. BAKER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether he will make a statement as to the policy of his Ministry with regard to the holding of directorships by employés in his Department?
§ Sir S. HOARE
Members of the Air Ministry staff are prohibited from taking part in the management of any firm or company which would interfere with or affect detrimentally their official duties, as, for instance, by involving at any time their attendance elsewhere during office or working hours or by giving them an active interest in undertakings which may have contractual relations with the Ministry. This is in accordance with the general practice of Government Departments.
