HC Deb 31 July 1972 vol 842 c34W
Mr. George Cunningham

asked the Lord President of the Council why he concluded that it would be inappropriate to place in the Library a copy of the transcript of the Poulson hearing while consultations were in progress.

Mr. R. Carr

I was advised that it would be inappropriate to place transcripts in the Library at a time when no decision had yet been taken as to the form of any further inquiry into Mr. Poulson's affairs and at a time when the transcript had not been certified as being correct. It still remains the position that the transcripts have not been certified. However, I understand that the Registrar has stated that he would have no objection to the transcripts in their present form being placed in the Library, and this has now been done.
