§ Sir L. Lyle
asked the Minister of Labour whether the assessment of personal qualifications of applicants on the Appointments Register will be regarded in all cases as privileged even if its inadvertent disclosure by either the assessor or employer is gravely prejudicial to the interests of the applicant; and whether 995W the latter will be furnished, at his request with a copy of the official assessment of his personal qualities.
§ Mr. Bevin
The question whether in any particular case a communication is privileged is one of law on which no general opinion can be expressed. As regards the second part of the Question, it would not be in the public interest to furnish a copy of the assessment of personal qualifications to the applicant concerned.
