HC Deb 09 November 1979 vol 973 cc349-50W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food 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. Peter Walker

It is not possible to provide a definitive and exhaustive list of questions which I might exceptionally decline to answer on grounds other than cost. It is my practice to consider each question on its merits, which I believe follows the approach adopted by my predecessors. I have not refused to answer any question since the present Government were formed.
