HC Deb 15 January 1974 vol 867 c30W
Mr. Warren

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what are the rules concerning the acceptance by recently retired senior officers of the Services of appointments in industrial companies with which they had customer/contractor relationships whilst in the Ministry of Defence.

Mr. Younger

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister gave on 2nd April 1973—[Vol. 854, c.11.]—in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for the Western Isles (Mr. Donald Stewart), in which he stated the rules applying to civil servants wishing to take up appointments on retirement or resignation. These rules apply equally to senior Service officers.
