§ 79. Mr. Sharples
asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources how many letters signed personally by him and relating to the official responsibilities of his Department have been sent in the last six months to the constituents of hon. Members or to organisations located in hon. Members' constituencies; in how many cases have these hon. Members not been sent copies of such letters or been informed at the time about this correspondence.17W
§ Mr. Willey
On a rough estimate some 70. In accordance with what I understand to be the general practice, hon. Members are not usually sent copies of letters written to third parties unless they have specifically asked to be informed.
