HC Deb 27 November 1995 vol 267 c509W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Security if he will list all those in his Department who have authority to issue public immunity interest certificates; how many such certificates have been issued in each of the last five years; and what were the main reasons for them. [1392]

Mr. Burt

Public interest immunity certificates relating to departmental documents or information are normally authorised by the appropriate Minister. No such certificates have been issued in respect of the Department of Social Security in the past five years.
