HC Deb 09 November 1979 vol 973 c342W
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 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.
