asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will publish the report, or reports, of the British Missions on the condition of, and situation in, the British-owned oilfields in Rumania.

I have not received a complete report but a number of despatches. I do not think any useful purpose would be served by publication.

Is the House to understand from that answer that reports will not be published?

No, Sir. One is not to understand that, but it would be most unfortunate if I began publishing des patches without waiting for a complete report.
