Select Committee on Public Administration Second Report


MEMORANDUM 17

Submitted by H M Treasury

Thank you for your letter of 9 June to Sir Andrew Turnbull about "blocked" Parliamentary questions in the 1998-99 session.

In each of the 30 cases cited by the House authorities the reason why the information could not be provided was explained in the written answer. In nine instances the information was not available nor did not fall within the responsibility of Treasury Ministers. In the other 21 cases non-disclosure was permissible under the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information. The enclosed note gives the relevant details, including the exemption under the Code which applied in the 21 cases.
