HC Deb 12 March 1963 vol 673 cc139-40W
Mr. Clark Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what progress has been made by the Government of Aden in collating, preserving and photographing the early papers and documents, held in the Secretariat, concerning the history and development of Aden.

Mr. Sandys

Preparatory work on the preservation of the archives has begun and protective boxes have been obtained for the safe keeping of the most valuable papers and documents. This week the Aden Legislative Council will consider financial provisions for housing the archives in the new museum.

A decision on the procedure for photographing the documents has still to be taken.
