HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 c270W
Mr. Norman Lamont

asked the Minister for the Civil Service what is the policy of the Government towards the appointment of homosexuals to Civil Service posts handling documents and information of a high security classification.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

Homosexuality is not in itself a bar to employment in the Civil Service on work involving access to classified information. There are no hard and fast rules relating to the employment of homosexuals on work of this nature; each case is considered on its merits.
