§ Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when the Index to the Statutes, currently ending in 1978, and Chronological Table of the Statute, currently ending in 1979, will be republished, and to what terminal date in each case; and what priority is given by Her Majesty's Stationery Office to ensuring that the publication of these documents encompasses the last Session of Parliament.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
[pursuant to the reply, 17 December 1981, c. 219]. The 1979 edition of the Index to the Statutes is expected to be published in January 1982 and the 1980 edition of the Chronological Table of the Statutes in Februray 1982. The terminal dates will be 31 December 1979 and 31 December 1980 respectively.
It has been the practice to relate these publications to the calendar year not to the Parliamentary Session. There is no intention to change this practice.
