§ Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Prime Minister why the revised list of ministerial responsibilities within Departments together with the Ministers' Private Office telephone numbers, produced by the Cabinet Office, was not available to right hon. Members and hon. Members when the House sat again on 21 October; and when it will be available.
§ Mr. Biffen
I have been asked to reply.
A revised edition of the "List of Ministerial Responsibilities" was not available on 21 October because the information required to update the text was not complete until late on 16 October. The final text was sent for reproduction on 18 October and copies will be available in the Whips' Office tomorrow.
