HC Deb 08 July 1981 vol 8 cc134-5W
Mr. Dubs

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many invitations from tobacco companies, or to events sponsored by such companies, have been (a) received and (b) accepted by civil servants in his Department since May 1979; and if he will list the events accepted and rejected, respectively.

Mr. MacGregor

Detailed records of this kind are not kept, but all such invitations have to be considered in accordance with the existing rules governing the acceptance of hospitality by civil servants.
