HC Deb 13 December 1926 vol 200 cc2575-6W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether the Report of the Committee of Inquiry into Government Printing Establishments will be laid upon the Table of the House before the prorogation of Parliament, in view of the fact that the Report. was prepared as long ago as March last; and what is the reason for the delay?


I understand that the Committee were within a short distance of completing their report before the Summer Recess, but that no meeting has been held since. I am not able to state the cause of this further delay, nor when the Report will be laid before the House.

Colonel DAY
