HC Deb 10 December 1957 vol 579 cc109-10W
61. Mr. Lewis

asked the Prime Minister if he is aware of the danger connected with Ministers appointing part-time personal assistants with no official position; and what control is exercised by him over Ministers making such personal part-time appointments.

The Prime Minister

I am not aware that there is any danger in making such appointments, if they are made with due discretion; and I am sure that a careful discretion is exercised by Ministers in this matter.
