Below is the text of Mr Major’s written Parliamentary Answer on Correspondence on 3rd March 1986.
Mr. Mason Asked the Secretary of State for Social Services when he is going to answer the letters from the right hon. Member for Barnsley, Central dated 25 November 1985 and 22 January 1986 asking him to conduct an inquiry into the dismissal of Mr. J. Brown from the social security appeal tribunals.
Mr. Major I wrote to the right hon. Member on 7 January in reply to his letter of 25 November. I regret that we have no record of having received his letter of 22 January, but if he would like to write to me again I will see that his letter receives immediate attention.
