To ask Her Majesty's Government when the last two publications in the series Whitehall Histories: Foreign and Commonwealth Office Publications previously edited by Gill Bennett and Keith Hamilton were last published; whether that series has continued; and if so, what are the next publications.

​I am pleased to report that the series Documents on British Policy Overseas (DBPO), now edited by Patrick Salmon and Richard Smith, is flourishing. DBPO is the documentary history of post-1945 British foreign policy published by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the series Whitehall Histories. The last two publications were: Series III, Volume X: The Polish Crisis and Relations with Eastern Europe, 1979-1982 (2017) and Series III, Volume XI: The Unwinding of Apartheid: UK-South Africa Relations, 1986-1990 (2019). The next publication, Series III, Volume XII: Britain and the Revolutions in Eastern Europe, 1989 is due out in autumn 2019.
