Mr. Baker

asked the Prime Minister when he is expecting to receive the Report of the Armitage Committee on Political Activities of Civil Servants; when he anticipates publication of the report; and whether, before announcing the Government's conclusions on the recommendations of the committee, he proposes to hold consultations with the political parties represented at Westminster.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

In my right hon. Friend's absence on his official visit to South Asia, I have been asked to reply.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply concerning the receipt of the Armitage Report which my right hon. Friend gave my hon. Friend the Member for Woolwich, East (Mr. Cartwright) on 16th December 1977. The report is being published today as Cmnd. 7057. I can assure the hon. Member that full consultations will be held before the Government's conclusions are announced.
