HC Deb 07 May 1982 vol 23 c144W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister for the Civil Service whether she will introduce legislation to provide that if any public servant is found guilty of neglect or wrongdoing in an official capacity any costs and damages are paid for by those concerned and not from public funds.

Mr. Hayhoe

No, the existing arrangements within the Civil Service already ensure that in such cases costs are not paid from public funds.
