HC Deb 13 April 1927 vol 205 cc346-7
52. Viscount SANDON

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the Stationery Office can be made the official medium for the sale and distribution of at least those reports and publications of the League of Nations with which British official representatives were involved; and whether, in so far as many of such reports are necessary for the duties of Members of Parliament, they can be put on the free list for Members on application?


The appointment of official agents for the sale and distribution of the publications of the League of Nations is a question for the League itself. I understand that in all cases the agency is held by a leading publisher or bookseller—in this country by Messrs. Constable—and I do not think that it, would be desirable to propose any change in the present arrangements. Reports by His Majesty's Government's representatives of League Council and Assembly Meetings are usually presented as Command Papers and all the more Important publications of the League are supplied to the Library of the House.

Colonel DAY

Will the right hon. Gentleman use his influence to see that Part II of the Traffic in Women Report is published?


I will look into that suggestion.
