The Commission cannot take responsibility for HMSO's retail network or the arrangements it has with retailers. The letter sent from Madam Speaker to the Ministry concerned contained the clear views of HMSO on how the House's requirements must be met. It has insisted at every stage that those requirements will be met. At the end of the day, it reserves the right to make whatever arrangements are necessary and appropriate to ensure that the House's publishing requirements are properly met.
