HC Deb 19 March 1970 vol 798 c612
Mr. Sharples

On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I seek your guidance? Yesterday I received a Written Answer from the Minister for Overseas Development which was placed on the board in the ordinary way, but I found this mornning that the Answer had not been printed in HANSARD. As the Answer announced a considerable concession which will be of benefit to indigenous pensioners of the civil administration and civil police of the former British Administration in Aden—for which I am grateful—I should be grateful to you, Mr. Speaker, if you will arrange for the Answer to appear in today's HANSARD.

Mr. Speaker

I have had a word with the Editor of HANSARD on this point, just as I have had a word with the Table Office about the other one. Both were printing errors; one will be corrected on the Order Paper and the other in HANSARD. I would be failing in what the House would want me to say if I did not pay tribute to those who prepare and print our Order Papers and HANSARD and note the fact that they so rarely make mistakes of this kind.
