§ THE EARL OF LAUDERDALE
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will obtain from the nationalised industries information enabling them to compile a list of all fee-earning consultancy assignments undertaken overseas, including those not paid for by Her Majesty's Government under bilateral technical assistance arrangements, (1) from June, 1, 1969, to June 1, 1970, and (2) since June, 1, 1970, both by the industries themselves and in collaboration with independent consultants, respectively.
No, my Lords. Consultancy assignments overseas undertaken by the nationalised industries are matters for the day-to-day management of the industries.
