This report follow the Committee's fifth report of July 2006, HC 689, session 2005-06 (ISBN 9780215030221). Their inquiry then revealed that "guidance on the publication of memoirs is weak, processes for clearance are ill-defined, and there have been no effective legal sanctions against those who publish without agreement". Since that report the flow of the publication of political memoirs has continued and it is felt that the issue remain current. In the current report the focus is on the following two questions: whether it is right that the Government should have the final say on what information can be included in memoirs; and whether revisions made the Foreign Office to its rules have unduly limited diplomats' ability to contribute to public debate
