HC Deb 18 May 1984 vol 60 c291W
Mr. Nicholas Brown

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will introduce legislation to require the employees of municipal housing departments to register their private sector financial interests and any other relationships which could conflict with the exercise of their public duties.

Sir George Young

My right hon. Friend has no plans to do so. Existing legislation, the arrangements for audit and the conditions of service of employees in local government taken together provide adequate safeguards.
