FOREIGN POLICY – ETHICS – 10 February 1998

Dr Julian Lewis: If he informed his officials of his relationship With his nominee for the post of diary secretary when he proposed her for that post?

[SUPPLEMENTARY:] I thank the Foreign Secretary for that answer. On reflection, does he realise that, if he had chosen to confide in his officials, it would not have taken him nine days to come to the blindingly obvious conclusion that what he was proposing was an unethical policy for someone in his position in the Foreign Office?
