§ LORD FERRIER
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, in view of the fact that the last available bound volume of the OFFICIAL, REPORT of the House of Lords concludes with the debate of the 8th February, 1968, they will arrange that the Stationery Office expedites the issue of some subsequent volumes at least to the end of the last Session of Parliament.995WA
§ LORD SHACKLETON
The delay has been mainly caused by the considerable increase in Parliamentary printing which has taken place during the last twelve months. The position on these volumes is, however, improving and Volumes 289 and 290, covering the debates up to 4th April, 1968, have now been issued. Volumes 291 and 292, bringing the de-996WA bates up to 30th May, will be published by the end of this month, and a further four volumes, covering the remaining period of the last Session, will be issued during March and early April.
House adjourned at twenty-four minutes before eight o'clock.
