HC Deb 20 October 1982 vol 29 c132W
Mr. Freeson

asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement as to the rules of conduct with regard to Ministers involving themselves in matters of controversy concerning their departmental responsibilities where such matters relate to the local authority of the constituency which they represent.

The Prime Minister

There are no specific rules governing this situation, but as a general rule Ministers should order theft affairs so that no conflict arises between their public duties as Ministers and their other interests and responsibilities.
