HC Deb 12 November 1987 vol 122 c301W
Mr. Wray

To ask the Lord Privy Seal if he will make a statement on the criteria which the Select Committee on House of Commons (Services) consider should be used in the vetting of staff of hon. Members, as envisaged in paragraph 23 of its second report, HC 195, Session 1984–85, indicating those organisations membership of which would be proscribed.

Mr. Wakeham

The Services Committee has made no recommendation about the criteria to be used in checking staff, and has not suggested the proscription of any particular organisation.
