§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Attorney-General when the Lord Chancellor intends to make available all public records relating to the Anglo-French-Israel negotiations before the 1956 Suez crisis.
The Solicitor General
The Lord Chancellor has already done so. As far as is known, all public records relating to Suez have been available in the Public Record Office since 2 January last, except for the small proportion approved for extended closure or retention under the usual criteria. No records have been withheld because they contain information about Anglo-French-Israeli negotiations.
