HC Deb 20 April 1977 vol 930 c93W
Mr. Lawson

asked the Minister for the Civil Service when he expects Her Majesty's Stationery Office to publish "Public General Acts and Measures" for the Session 1974–75; and what is the explanation for the continued and unprecedented delay.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

The bound volume of "Public General Acts and Measures" for 1975 was published on 4th April 1977. The delay was due mainly to the fact that a substantial amount of legislation in the 1974–75 Session did not receive Royal Assent until late in 1975, thus dislocating the normal printing timetable for the bound volume of Acts.
