HC Deb 18 March 1958 vol 584 cc126-7W
106. Mr. Beswick

asked the Postmaster-General why he has refused the request of Mr. F. J. Pearson to see the inspector's report on which he based his decision to reject Mr. Pearson's appeal against the compulsory purchase of No. 25, Worple Road, Wimbledon.

Mr. K. Thompson

To have published this report would have been out of line with Government policy. It did not prove practicable to adopt retrospectively the Franks Committee recommendation on publication. Copies of reports on inquiries, from now on, will be made available on request in accordance with the statement made to the House by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary on 31st October, 1957.
