§ Mr. Bruce-Gardyne
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer why no copy of the full text of the communiqué issued at 262W the end of the Chief Secretary's visit to Bonn on 29th June was available in London following the Chief Secretary's return.
§ Mr. Diamond
A copy of the communiqué was sent on request to the Library of the House of Commons at about 1 p.m. on Thursday, 1st July, and the full text was circulated in the OFFICIAL REPORT for 1st July (cols.837–8). The full text was also available through the normal Press sources. For the general practice in this matter I would refer the hon. Member to the Answer which the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs has given to a further Question of his today.
