HC Deb 23 May 1985 vol 79 c547W
30. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is his practice concerning the signing by Ministers in his Department of written answers to parliamentary questions before they are sent to hon. Members.

Mr. Hayhoe

My right hon. Friend requires draft answers to be approved and initialled by Ministers before they are re-typed and sent to hon. Members.
