HC Deb 08 October 1946 vol 427 cc16-7W
77. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will take the necessary steps to ensure that letters from Member? of Parliament on important constituency matters addressed to Ministers should be replied to by the Minister addressed or his Parliamentary Secretary and not over the signature of an office secretary.

Mr. Glenvil Hall

A universal rule on the lines suggested would not be appropriate. The matter is one which in my view hon. Members should, if necessary, take up with the Minister concerned.
