HC Deb 01 May 1919 vol 115 c312

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if his attention has been directed to a publication of the Government of Queensland entitled "Socialism at Work," showing how the Queensland Government succeeded in profitably establishing State ventures where the needs of the people called for State competition or State monopoly; and if, in view of the great importance of the results achieved by the Labour Government of Queensland, he will reprint this State paper for the information of this House and of the country?

Lieutenant-Colonel AMERY

I do not consider that the Government would be justified in incurring the expense of reprinting the pamphlet, but I shall be very happy to place a copy in the Library for the use of Members.


Would the right hon. Gentleman also publish some information as to how socialism works in Russia?


And, in addition, Queensland?
