§ Mr. Ronald Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Defence (1) if he is satisfied that all interests have been declared by Army personnel associated either personally or through family connection with the Fion Mace Publishing and Recording Company;
(2) if he will publish in the Official Report the name of the Director of Music who declared his interests in the Fion Mace Publishing and Recording Company; what is his regiment; how his family interest occurs; and how long he has had the interest and on which day 262W in February 1976 he actually recorded his interest;
(3) in the light of his recent answer, on how many occasions Army bands have recorded for record companies in which directors of music have either a direct or family interest;
(4) on how many occasions Army bands have undertaken work for the Fion Mace Publishing and Recording Company; and how the commanding officers satisfied themselves that Army regulations had not been breached concerning the directors of that firm and family connections with directors of music of Army bands.
§ Mr. Robert C. Brown
Investigations which are currently taking place relating to an Army band have been extended in order to look into the nature and extent of any Service association with the Fion Music Publishing and Recording Company. If my hon. Friend has information which could be relevant to this inquiry I shall be grateful if he will let me have written details.
