HC Deb 06 March 1996 vol 273 c244W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidelines exist for former members of immigration and nationality departments who leave the service to become immigration consultants. [18574]

Mr. Kirkhope

There are no specific guidelines. All former members of staff remain bound by the provisions of the Official Secrets Acts and by their duty of confidentiality to the Crown. In addition, all staff who leave are reminded of their obligations under the business appointment rules.
