HC Deb 06 May 1969 vol 783 cc68-9W
Q11. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister to what extent chairmen of State or Government boards who receive salaries are allowed to hold private employment as salaried chairmen of public companies.

The Prime Minister

The principle is that the private employment should not take up time required for the efficient discharge of the individual's public duties, or involve any conflict of interest.
