HC Deb 18 July 1969 vol 787 cc210-1W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity why an official from her Department advised Mr. J. H. Mitchell, formerly employed by K. & M. Shipbrokers Limited, to approach the Daily Express Action Line when he asked her Redundancy Payments Acts Department for advice; and to what extent it is the practice of her Department to advise persons to go to newspapers for information which is available in her Department.

Mr. Harold Walker

I am inquiring into Mr. Mitchell's case and will write to my hon. Friend. It is not the practice of my Department to act as in the second part of the Question.
