HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 cc52-3W
20. Mr. Lennox-Boyd

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when it is proposed to publish another Handbook of Commercial Treaties, the last edition of which was published in 1931.

Mr. McNeil

Since some of our existing treaties may have to be varied and since a number of new treaties will be concluded with various countries, I do not consider that the publication of a new edition of this handbook would at present be justified. A new edition will be published as soon as is appropriate.
