HC Deb 19 April 1995 vol 258 cc175-6W
Mr. McMaster

To ask the Prime Minister what instructions and advice is given to special advisers who occupy the civil service box inside the Chamber of the House as to their conduct, behaviour and impartiality during Question Time, statements and debates; and if he has any plans to amend or review this advice; and if he will make a statement. [18979]

The Prime Minister

Attendance in the Official Box is by permission of Madam Speaker who has laid down clear rules on officials' behaviour. These require officials to conduct themselves discreetly at all times. I expect these rules to be scrupulously observed.
