Q20. Ms. Gordon

To ask the Prime Minister why the hon. Member for Bow and Poplar was not informed(a) by her Office of her visit to Bow and Poplar on 11 May and (b) by the Department of Trade and Industry of Lord Young's visit on 4 November 1987, in connection with the Canary Wharf development; and if she will ensure that in future Ministers visiting Canary Wharf inform the hon. Member for Bow and Poplar in advance.

The Prime Minister

As my Office explained to the hon. Lady on 11 May, I regret that she was not informed in advance of my visit. My usual practice in such matters is set out in my reply to the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras (Mr. Dobson) on 11 May 1988 at column 121. I have drawn the hon. Lady's concern to my right hon. and noble Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry.
