HC Deb 26 June 1956 vol 555 cc36-7W
Mr. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the rules concerning State employees holding directorships, drawing fees, and undertaking part-time employment in private industry, whilst holding paid employment with the State: what rules or regulations govern this; and what categories of State employees are concerned in the question of undertaking private employment.

Mr. H. Macmillan

I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the general rules. Whole-time civil servants, established or unestablished, are prohibited from accepting positions which require their attendance during office hours or impair their usefulness as public servants or may conflict with the interests of their Departments or be inconsistent with their position as public servants.
