HC Deb 15 December 1964 vol 704 c65W
Q18. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether, when considering the nomination and appointment of hon. Members to committees and delegations to overseas conferences, etc., he will give consideration to those Members who have had 20 or more years' service in the House of Commons without having had the opportunity of attending any of these conferences.

The Prime Minister

Yes. Due consideration is given to all relevant factors in these matters.

Q19. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister what action he takes to ensure that, when officially inviting Members of Parliament to Government receptions, lunches and dinners, etc., to meet overseas and other guests of Her Majesty's Government, Members with 20 or more years of service in the House of Commons, who have never hitherto received such an invitation, are given an opportunity of receiving one before their retirement from Parliament.

The Prime Minister

All relevant considerations are taken into account in these matters.
