HC Deb 19 March 1974 vol 870 cc73-4W
Q6. Mrs. Kellett-Bowman

asked the Prime Minister what will be his policy in making recommendations to Her Majesty for inclusions in the Honours List.

The Prime Minister

I shall follow the policies of my predecessors in these matters, save that I do not intend to recommend honours for political services. In this I am reverting to the practice which I followed from 1966 to 1970. Honours will of course continue to be given on an all-party basis for service in local government.
