§ 42. Mr. JOYNSON-HICKS
asked the Secretary for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the discovery of an alleged volume of the Black Prince's Diary; whether he proposes to secure it for the nation; and whether it has previously been in the possession of the nation?
§ Mr. McKENNA
Yes, Sir. I am informed by the Public Record Office that the document has certainly not been in the possession of the nation since the beginning of the nineteenth century, and that the question of securing it for the nation is receiving their attention.
