HC Deb 13 March 1980 vol 980 c712W
Mr. Ernie Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether the public and news media are given or can be given access to hearings before commanding officers; and what means they have of knowing that hearings are taking place.

Mr. Hayhoe

Access to summary proceedings before commanding officers is not given to the public and news media, but those involved may disclose that they are taking place if they so wish.
