HC Deb 17 March 1927 vol 203 c2167

asked the Minister of Pensions if he will take steps to expedite the publication of the Report on the work of the Ministry during the current year, with a view, if possible, that the Report should be presented to this House not later than the end of June, 1927?

The MINISTER of PENSIONS (Major Tryon)

Much of the material required for the Annual Report can only be collected some time after the close of the financial year. I fear, therefore, that I could not undertake to present the Report by the date suggested. I am, however, in favour of the issue of the Annual Report as early as possible, and I have already taken steps to expedite its preparation.
