§ Baroness Byford
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will ensure that all reports produced or initiated or commissioned by a government department carry the date of the publication on the body of the report and not only on the letter which accompanies the report; and whether they will require all such reports to contain within them the full glossary. [HL3799]
§ The Minister for the Cabinet Office and Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Lord Macdonald of Tradeston)
It is impractical to include the date of publication on a report as this may not be known when it is sent for final printing. The inclusion of glossaries is a matter of good practice and these will be included whenever time allows for these to be produced.
