Tony Blair

Volume 471: debated on Wednesday 30 January 2008

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether Tony Blair has sought access to Government papers for work on his memoirs; and if he will make a statement. (181081)

The Ministerial Code sets out the rules in relation to the clearance of memoirs and access to official papers. As has been the practice under successive administrations, any discussions between former Ministers and the Cabinet Secretary, including requests for access to papers, are undertaken on an in-confidence basis.
