HC Deb 10 November 1971 vol 825 c185W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what is his policy in regard to giving information to hon. Members on matters for which he is responsible that concern matters being considered by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration.

Mr. Ridley

A predominant consideration is to avoid in any way anticipating or prejudicing the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration's examination or findings. All requests for information must be judged on their own merits.
