HC Deb 09 July 1979 vol 970 cc31-2W
55. Mr. William Hamilton

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many hon. Members have returned the questionnaire relating to their outside financial interests; and when it is intended to publish the up-to-date register.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I understand from the Registrar of Members' Interests that about 600 hon. Members have so far declared their interests. The question of the publication of the register will be a matter for the new Select Committee on Members' Interests when it is established.
