HL Deb 18 February 1982 vol 427 c733WA
Lord Winstanley

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the reported sacking of Sir Richard O'Brien as chairman of the Manpower Services Commission and his replacement by a former political adviser to Sir Keith Joseph, indicates a change in Government policy.

Earl Ferrers

The appointment of Mr David Young to take over the chairmanship of the Manpower Services Commission when Sir Richard O'Brien's term of office comes to an end in April this year does not represent a change in Government policy towards the Manpower Services Commission.
