asked the Secreretary of State for Social Services if he has sanctioned the activities of Professor Roger Dyson, his special adviser on industrial relations, in organising for private profit seminars on how to counter trade union activity in the National Health Service; and if he will make a statement.

My responsibilities relate solely to Professor Dyson's activities as my special adviser on industrial relations, and do not extend to his academic activities.
