§ Mr. Madden
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the appointment of controllers, assistant controllers, and other senior appointments above grade MP 7 within the British Broadcasting Corporation meets the criteria of the incomes policy.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees
The appointment of individuals to posts in the BBC is a matter of day-to-day management for the Corporation. I have no knowledge of any departure from the BBC's practice of complying with the current Government incomes policy.
