HC Deb 17 October 1950 vol 478 c238W
Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why the Annual Report of the Deputy Master and Controller of the Mint for 1947 was only published on 4th July, 1950; and when he anticipates the publication of the reports for 1948 and 1949.

Mr. Jay

The delay in publishing the Report for 1947 resulted from the wartime suspension of the publication of these reports. Publication of the Reports was resumed in 1948, with the publication in one volume of the Reports for 1939–44. The Report for 1945 was published in April, 1949, and that for 1946 in March, 1950. It is expected that the Report for 1948 will be published shortly arid that for 1949 will follow as soon as possible.
