HC Deb 13 January 1989 vol 144 cc752-3W
Mr. Amess

To ask the Lord President of the Council if he will take steps to arrange for United States Congressional publications to be made available to hon. Members on the same conditions as United Nations publications; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Wakeham

No. Right hon. and hon. Members may apply for United Nations publications on a green demand form because Her Majesty's Stationery Office acts as an agent for this international body. HMSO does not act as an agent for United States congressional publications, nor for any other overseas national body.

As the hon. Member will be aware, microfiche copies of the congressional record are held in the Library and printouts of selected passages from these are available on request.
