§ Mr. Rooker
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list those topics on which it is not his practice to answer parliamentary questions; and if he will list any changes in the practice of his Department since 3 May.
§ Mr. Fowler
I answer only those questions for which I have Ministerial responsibility. There are no topics within that responsibility where I have a "practice" of declining to answer, on grounds other than cost. I would not expect to comment on matters which come within the day-to-day management responsibility of the nationalised transport industries because those matters are not within my ministerial responsibility.
