HC Deb 10 July 1978 vol 953 c367W
Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

asked the Minister for the Civil Service, further to the reply to the hon. Member for Edinburgh, West on 30th June, whether all parliamentary papers are published simultaneously throughout the United Kingdom, including Scotland, where time and security considerations permit; and, if not, on what criteria he decides the number of places from which the papers will be issued.

Mr. Charles R. Morris

Simultaneous publication of important parliamentary papers at all Government bookshops is arranged by Her Majesty's Stationery Office whenever it is practicable and the departmental Minister concerned considers it to be necessary.
