HC Deb 04 December 1947 vol 445 cc564-5
46. Mr. Watkins

asked the Prime Minister when a further White Paper on Government action in Wales is to be presented to Parliament.

The Lord President of the Council (Mr. Herbert Morrison)

I have been asked to reply. A report of Government action in Wales and Monmouthshire for the year ended 30th June, 1947, has been presented this afternoon, and copies are now available in the Vote Office.

Mr. Watkins

Will my right hon. Friend indicate whether a Debate on Welsh affairs will take place this year or next year?

Mr. H. Morrison

It is intended that there shall be a Debate, and we are doing our best to have it this year. If we do not succeed, it will not be long afterwards.

Major Guy Lloyd

Would the right hon. Gentleman give an indication whether we are likely to have a report on Government inaction in Scotland?

Mr. Morrison

That kind of question does not deserve a reply.
