HC Deb 13 March 1929 vol 226 c1146W

asked the Minister of Labour if he can supply to Members of the House all documents issued recently to his officials marked private and confidential; and, if not, why he cannot do so?


As was stated by my right hon. Friend in reply to a question on 28th November, it has been the invariable practice of his predecessors in office to treat instructions to the staff as confidential; he does not think he ought to alter this practice, which, in his view, conduces to sound administration.
