HC Deb 23 June 1927 vol 207 cc2044-5
39. Mr. BRIANT

asked the Minister of Health if the reports of the inspectors of his Department on the condition of the hop fields during the season of 1926 have been published; and, if not, can a copy be supplied to such Members of the House as may desire them?


The answer to the first question is in the negative. There did not appear to me to be sufficient reason to publish the report referred to in my answer to the hon. Member's question of the 18th November, 1926. As regards the last part of the question, I think it would be undesirable on general grounds to furnish unpublished reports to individual Members of this House.


Is it not a fact that in previous years copies of these reports have been obtainable by Members of Parliament?


I do not think so.
