Business Appointments Of Former Ministers

EDM number 1075 in 1989-90, proposed by Marjorie Mowlam on 06/06/1990.

That this House recognises with growing concern the number of ex-Government Ministers taking up senior positions in companies previously privatised by their own Department; notes that the precedent was established by the Right honourable Member for Chingford and subsequently followed by the Right honourable Members for Sutton Coldfield and Worcester; and, acknowledging the current prohibition of civil servants from such positions in private companies until a reasonable time has elapsed since they left office, urges the Government to give an assurance that the disparity in this regard will be addressed immediately as it clearly raises issues of propriety and the possibility of a personal conflict of interest.

This motion has been signed by a total of 55 MPs, 2 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
