HC Deb 30 April 1998 vol 311 c224W
35. Mr. Canavan

To ask the Attorney-General what advice has been sought from his Department on trade union recognition. [39146]

The Attorney-General

There is a long standing Convention, followed by successive Governments, that neither the substance of Law Officers' advice, nor the fact that they have been consulted is disclosed outside Government. I see no reason for departure from that Convention on this occasion.
