HC Deb 18 May 1972 vol 837 c161W
42. Mr. David Clark

asked the Lord President of the Council if he will review the arrangements by which members of his Administration decide to make personal statements to the House, or to correct in other ways information which is subsequently discovered to be wrong.

Mr. R. Carr

No. The appropriate way for a Minister, or any other hon. Member, to make a correction in information which he has given to the House depends on the circumstances of the particular case and should, I believe, remain a matter of personal judgment.
