HC Deb 13 February 1981 vol 998 c429W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether he will give the reasons why he will not publish in the Official Report the list of names which the Government keep of persons available for appointment to Government bodies, nor disclose the names of individuals on it.

Mr. Hayhoe

I refer the hon. Member to the speech made by my predecessor, my right hon. Friend the Member for Southend, West (Mr. Channon) on 4 August 1980, in which he explained why publication would not be appropriate.—[Vol. 990, c. 319.]
