HC Deb 25 November 1964 vol 702 c197W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Secretary to the Treasury why no Bound Volumes of HANSARD have been delivered to hon. Members since that for March, 1964; what steps he is taking to hasten the binding of the weekly editions; and what is the average period of delay in binding.

Mr. MacDermot

These volumes are separately printed and cannot be produced merely by binding the weekly parts. Their production has been delayed by building work and the heavy load of printing at the Parliamentary Press in recent months. There has been no delay in binding.

The volume covering sittings up to 10th April, 1964, is now available and some others are nearing completion. By the end of the year the interval between publication of the Bound Volumes and the end of the period they cover should be reduced to about the normal four months.
