HC Deb 07 May 1982 vol 23 cc143-4W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister when she had discussions with Mr. Leslie Chapman; what were the objects of the discussions; whether he was offered a job; when this is likely to begin; and whether she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

I invited Mr. Chapman to see me in September 1979 to give me his advice on how to make public sector operations more efficient. He was not offered a job, but I regard his advice as valuable.
