§ Mr. McQuarrie
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what further progress has been made in the printing of the bound volumes of the Official Report for the year 1984; and when it is anticipated that these volumes will be brought up to date.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
Volume 52 of theOfficial Report covering the period from 16 to 27 January 1984 was published on 21 December 1984. Volume 43, the 1982–83 Sessional Index, is expected to be published during the week of 4 February. Volume 53 is now with the binders and Volumes 54 to 56 are in the final stages of production.
It is hoped that the backlog will be substantially reduced, if not eradicated, by the end of the next summer recess, and I am advised that the House authorities expect a regular production cycle of five months to be achieved by the end of 1985.
