HC Deb 25 June 1991 vol 193 c450W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) if he will make it his policy to place in the Library a copy of all documents obtained by his representative on the Auditing Practices Board;

(2) whether he will propose legislation under which it will be an offence for the Auditing Standards Board not to provide information to a Member of the House which it provides to auditing firms.

Mr. Redwood

No doubt the Auditing Practices Board will bear in mind the hon. Member's interest when deciding its policy on access to its papers.
