To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Holborn and St. Pancras of 13 November, Official Report, column 112, (1) if he will publish the list of appointments various companies have held in advising on past privatisations;(2) whether the performance of any adviser on privatisation has been such as to cause them to warn Departments before considering them for a further privatisation.

[holding answers 22 November 1990]: I have placed a copy of the list the hon. Member requested in the Library. Obviously, past performance is one of the factors taken into account in considering an adviser for a further appointment.
