Mr. Hill

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what progress has been made by the Royal Commission on historical manuscripts in considering Southampton university's application to be made the depository library for the papers of the first Duke of Wellington.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I am giving this matter my full consideration and I hope shortly to be in a position to make an announcement.
