§ Mr. Faulds
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what representations he has received from the Social History Society of the United Kingdom about the availability of Inland Revenue records for study and research and the shortening of the period before they are made available.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
My right hon. Friend received a letter, enclosing a copy of a Press release, drawing attention to the restrictions on access and quoting the History Society's resolution to the effect that Inland Revenue records should be available to researchers after 50 years.
