To ask the Secretary of State for Health when the Minister for Public Health informed him of her concerns over a potential conflict of interest arising out of her family links with the motor racing industry; and if he will publish (a) the advice he offered her and (b) the advice she received from the Permanent Secretary.[16747]

My hon. Friend the Minister for Public Health first raised this issue with me when we discussed the division of responsibilities within the Ministerial team at the start of May.

Both the Permanent Secretary and I are fully satisfied that no conflict of interest arises for my hon. Friend the Minister for Public Health and that she has fully observed my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister's guidance to Ministers on conduct and procedures.

It is not the practice to publish internal advice on such matters.
