HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 cc350-1W
Mr. Peter Bottomley

To ask the President of the board of Trade what assessment he has made of the reasons for the relative rates of sickness of staff(a) at Companies House and (b) the Laboratory of the Government Chemist.

Mr. Heseltine

My Department's agencies are assessed against a range of measures and have good records of meeting targets and improving their performance from year to year. I am, however, looking into the issues raised by my hon. Friend's question.
