HC Deb 19 October 1972 vol 843 cc114-5W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the fees obtained by Mr. Michael Moriarty of his Department when describing his normal Civil Service duties on radio programmes are payable to his Department; and on what authority Civil Servants from his Department are entitled to earn such moneys in addition to their salaries.

Mr. R. Carr

This Question is based on entirely false assumptions. Mr. Moriarty together with my hon. and learned Friend the Minister of State and a number of other hon. Members took part in a radio programme to inform listeners about the legislative process. No fee was offered or requested.
