§ Mr. Kilfedder
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what plans have been made to celebrate in Northern Ireland the entry into the Common Market; and what is the estimated cost of such entertainment.
§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether in future she will ensure that only persons who have been democratically elected should hold such appointments as chairmen of the committees organising the celebrations of Great Britain's entry into the European Economic Community.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
In making any appointment I shall continue to have only one consideration: to find the best man or woman for the job. In the case referred to, both the chairmen had unrivalled experience both as Chairmen of Committees and of the kinds of events with which the celebrations were concerned.
