§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will publish the information on other sources of income which he sought from candidates for Government-financed jobs prior to appointment.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
I am responsible for very few such appointments—the Director General of NEDO, chairmen of economic development committees, and members of the Review Board for Government Contracts. I do not, in general, seek information about other sources of income when making them; but I ensure as far as I can that there will be no risk of conflict between appointees' personal interests, and the requirements of their appointment.
