§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Minister for the Civil Service how many documents and reports his Department has published under the "Croham directive" since May 1979; and if he will list them.
§ Mr. Channon
As I told the House on 20 June 1979—[Vol. 968, c. 1315]— it is no longer possible to distinguish between material published under the Croham directive and material that would have been published in any case. Since May 1979 my Department has published the 36 items listed below in addition to material published on a regular basis. All CSD publications and other CSD418W items available to the general public are listed in the quarterly publication "Management Services in Government".
