HC Deb 12 March 1951 vol 485 c1062
49. Mr. Hurd

asked the Lord President of the Council if he will place in the Library of the House of Commons a copy of the Memorandum on Soil Fertility and Cropping in the Gambia which the Medical Research Council sent to the Colonial Development Corporation on 9th February, 1951.

Mr. H. Morrison

Yes, Sir. I am placing a copy of the communication in the Library of the House.

Mr. Hurd

May I thank the Lord President for that answer, and shall we have an opportunity of seeing the memorandum today, before the debate tomorrow?

Mr. Morrison

I am not sure, but I will do my best in the matter. Hon. Members should not regard as a precedent the fact that the memorandum of the Medical Research Council is being put in the Library, but I thought that in the special circumstances of this case it would be right to do so.

Mr. Renton

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the Office of Lord President of the Council has become Siamese twins?
