asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether all British Embassies and Legations are supplied with copies of Hansard and with the bound volumes?

No, Sir. His Majesty's Ambassadors and Ministers abroad receive such extracts from Hansard as are necessary for the work of their missions; but, with very few exceptions, they do not receive a complete set of Hansard.

Will not my right hon. Friend take steps to see that Embassies are supplied with copies of the proceedings of this House? Otherwise it is impossible for them to know the state of opinion here.

However desirable that might be in ordinary circumstances, I am sure my hon. and gallant Friend will realise the pressure on the transport services at the present time.

Does Hitler get copies of Hansard sent to him from time to time?
