HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 cc264-5W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Prime Minister whether the volume of the official History of the Great War dealing with the campaign of Passchendaele, 1917, will be published this year as hoped, or what has caused the delay.

The Prime Minister

The volume of the official history which deals with Passchendaele is ready for the Press. The date of its publication will depend on the time taken to see through the Press two other volumes already with the printers and the Passchendaele volume itself. This will take rather longer than was formerly estimated, and the hope that it would be completed before the end of this year is now unlikely to be realised.
