HC Deb 09 March 1987 vol 112 c26W
Mr. Mark Carlisle

asked the Prime Minister what is her practice in replying to questions from right hon. and hon. Members relating to her engagements both official and private; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

As the House is aware, I am answerable only in relation to my official duties and responsibilities. I shall, of course, continue to answer questions which properly relate to those duties and which do not breach confidentiality. My normal practice will be neither to confirm nor to deny whether meetings with private individuals have taken place, even in those cases where no such meeting has occurred.
