§ Mr. GROVES
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that a number of Acts of Parliament at present in force are out of print and not obtainable from His Majesty's Stationery Office; and whether he will take steps to ensure that no member of the public should be in the position of being unable to obtain copies of legislative measures?
§ Mr. W. S. MORRISON
Prior to 1887 the printing and publication of Acts of Parliament was entrusted to a private firm acting under a Patent, but I agree with the hon. Member that no member of the public should be in the position of not being able to obtain a copy of any Public General Act which is in force. If the hon. Member will let me know the particular Acts of Parliament to which he refers, I will make inquiries into the matter.
