HL Deb 24 September 2002 vol 638 cc191-2WA
Lord Hooson

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Statement by Lord Bach on 22 July (HL Deb. col. 23), whether they will place in the Library of the House or otherwise publish the advice they receive from "an extremely distinguished Queen's counsel" together with the instructions to, and the questions asked of, him or her, before there is a debate on the report of the Select Committee, under the chairmanship of Lord Jauncey of Tullichettle, on the Chinook helicopter disaster. [HL5578]

Lord Bach

It is not the practice of any government department to publish either such instructions or such privileged advice. I am therefore withholding the information requested in accordance with Exemption 2 of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information.
