§ 47. Mr. David Stoddart
asked the Minister for the Civil Service what pre cautions he takes to ensure that civil servants observe the rules relating to their involvement in party political controversy.
§ Mr. David Howell
The rules are drawn to the attention of civil servants in the Handbook for the new Civil Servant and in departmental staff handbooks. A breach of the rules would be treated as a disciplinary matter within the responsibility of the head of the department.
