§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the President of the Board of Trade which Ministers in his Department were in attendance at their offices on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day; and for what period of time.
§ Mr. Crosland
Of the Ministers in this Department, on the days mentioned, one was on sick leave, two were in attendance at their offices and two were on call on New Year's Eve, and one was in attendance and three were on call on New Year's Day. I do not ask my Ministers at what precise times they arrive and leave, since I know that they all work extremely hard. But if my hon. Friend tried to reach one of them without success, I would be obliged if he could send me details.
