§ 6.53 p.m.
§ [The question was as follows:
§ To ask His Majesty's Government whether they propose to lay on the Table a printed copy of the judgment and verdicts of the Court at Nuremberg, and if so, whether that would be done as soon as possible.]
§ THE LORD CHANCELLOR
My Lords, in reply to the noble Viscount's question, printed copies of the judgment and verdicts of the Court at Nuremberg will be available in the Library as soon as possible. I will go further, however, and consult my colleagues and the authorities as to whether or not it is proper to have them published as a Command Paper. At the present moment I have no authority to say that it shall be done.
§ VISCOUNT CECIL OF CHELWOOD
I hope my noble friend will be able to persuade his colleagues that this document, which, in my judgment, is almost the most important international document which has ever existed, should be made available to every member of this House.
