HC Deb 21 August 1945 vol 413 cc473-4W
Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if instructions will now be given to all Government Departments to issue statistical data and reports in accordance with pre-war practice.

Mr. Dalton

Departments are already reviewing their arrangements for the publication of statistical information, whether in annual reports or otherwise. Resumption of publication must, however, con- tinue to be affected by current manpower, printing, and paper difficulties.
