HC Deb 22 July 1968 vol 769 c18W
Sir C. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that his practice of giving information asked in Parliamentary Questions by referring to various old publications is overburdening the Library Research Unit, which is less well equipped to give the information than his own Department; and if he will now cease this practice.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

I will bear the hon. Member's point in mind, but there are many occasions on which this is a reasonable, convenient and well-established practice.
