asked the Secretary of State for Trade what were the grounds which led him to select Mr. Joseph Jackson, QC, as the inspector into the affairs of CST Investments Ltd.; and if Mr. Jackson's previous association with Mr. Selmes was declared by him and known to him at the time of appointment.

Mr. Jackson is an eminent silk whose qualifications make him fully competent to investigate the affairs of this company. My Department was aware that he had previously advised Mr. Selmes on a matter wholly unconnected with the present inquiry, and did not consider that that fact was relevant, a view which was subsequently endorsed by the Bar Council.
