HC Deb 10 November 1966 vol 735 c353W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the growing practice, during the past two years, of chairmen of nationalised boards taking on other appointments, sometimes of an honorary character, and using these positions for adverse comments, and attacks on the Government, and political comment; and whether he will give general directions, in the public interest, to stop this practice.

The Prime Minister

No, Sir, but I have of course seen the letter my hon. Friend wrote to me recently on this subject and I hope to reply to him soon.
