HC Deb 09 March 1926 vol 192 cc2107-8
66. Mr. HARRIS

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why the recently-published Report of the Agent-General for Reparation Payments, issued by the Stationery Office, was printed in Berlin?


The Report is not a British Government document; but the British Stationery Office acts as agent for the Reparation Commission for the publication and sale of the English text of Reports issued by the Commission. The type of the recently published Report was, presumably for reasons of convenience, set up in Berlin, where the Agent-General has his office.


Would it not be more satisfactory to print on the document where it is printed, instead of putting it in an English cover, apparently to conceal its origin?


That is a matter of opinion.
