Premature Disclosure Of Draft Health Committee Report

EDM number 1213 in 1990-91, proposed by Robin Cook on 25/07/1991.

That this House recalls the Second Report of the Committee of Privileges of Session 1984-85 on Premature Disclosure of Select Committee Documents and their conclusion that the test of public interest was interference with the working of the Committee through premature disclosure; notes the statement by the Secretary of State for Health that he received a copy of a draft report of the Select Committee on Health; and believes that his statement should be referred to the Committee of Privileges to enquire into whether a contempt has occurred through premature disclosure of a draft report and whether this disclosure resulted in interference in the working of the Committee.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
