asked the Minister for the Civil Service if he will review the present rules governing the acceptance of posts in private industry by civil servants.

The present rules were laid down by the previous Government following a review in 1975. The Select Committee on the Treasury and the Civil Service have recently taken evidence on this subject and I should like to consider its recommendations before taking any decisions on this topic.
