§ Lord Kennet asked Her Majesty's Government
How many former officials of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and former environmental health officers have subsequently gone into employment with the agro-chemical industry or its associations, and what rules apply in these cases.
§ Baroness Trumpington
I regret that the number is not available in respect of my department and I have no information about environmental health officers, who are employed by local authorities. Civil servants are governed by rules on the acceptance of outside appointments which are set out in Appendix 1 of the House of CommonsDefence Committee Second Report Business Appointments, Session 1987–88 HC, No. 392, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.
