Mr. Fisher

To ask the Chncellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will place in the Library a copy of the report into the operation of freedom of information laws in Australia, Canada and New Zealand submitted to the Cabinet Office by Mr. Robert Hazell at the conclusion of his civil service Nuffield and Leverhulme travelling fellowship in 1986–87.
