HC Deb 13 December 1956 vol 562 c600
17. Mr. C. Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Report of the Council for Wales and Monmouth on Government Administration in Wales will be published.

The Secretary of State for the Home Department and Minister for Welsh Affairs (Major Gwilym Lloyd-George)

The Council's Third Memorandum, of which this Report is a part, is being printed and will be published as soon as it is available. I cannot give a firm date but I hope it will be possible for it to be published in time for hon. Members to have it when the House reassembles after the Christmas Recess.

Mr. Hughes

Is it not the case that there is generally a great delay between the time when these reports on Welsh affairs are made available to the Minister and the time of their publication? Will not the right hon. and gallant Gentleman do something to hasten the publication of this important Report?

Major Lloyd-George

I cannot say any more than that it is being printed at the moment.
