HC Deb 28 January 1992 vol 202 cc487-8W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his evidence to the Lord Justice Bingham was oral or in written form; if he will publish his evidence; and whether the evidence was given at his own request.

Mr. Maples

Lord Justice Bingham is taking evidence in private, for reasons which are well understood. It would not therefore be appropriate for me to publish the evidence I have given to Lord Justice Bingham or to disclose any details about it. The Prime Minister assured the House on 22 July 1991, at column 759, that all Ministers and officials would co-operate fully with Lord Justice Bingham's inquiries, and we are doing so.
