New copies of the "special volume" can no longer be obtained. A copy is available at the Public Record Office in class ADM 116/5541. One hundred and one items of Foreign Office records and six of Admiralty records from 1946 to 1950 have been withheld under Section 5(1) of the Public Records Acts of 1958 and 1967. Twelve are retained in the Foreign and Commonwealth Office under Section 3(4) for a period yet to be determined. It would not be appropriate to publish a detailed list.
