HC Deb 20 March 1985 vol 75 c519W
Mr. Adley

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Christchurch on 21 February, Official Report, column 557, after the Budget, he will prepare a dossier on the extent and practice of lobbying, with particular reference to its relationship to the instigation of an autumn statement; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Moore

There has been considerable lobbying about taxation matters prior to this year's Budget. The Government consider all representations made to them and take account of them in formulating their Budget.
