HC Deb 01 February 1994 vol 236 c633W
Dr. Wright

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland which of the public appointments for which he is responsible require advance notice to and consultation with the Chief Whip's office; and which appointments made since 1979 have been so ratified and consulted upon.

Sir John Wheeler

It is not the practice of Her Majesty's Government to answer parliamentary questions about discussions and consultations between Departments and offices of Government relating to public appointments.
