HC Deb 25 June 1858 vol 151 cc414-5

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether any arrangement has yet been made for the more speedy and regu- lar delivery to Members at their residences of papers "presented by Command?"


said, that if the hon. Baronet would refer to the paper of the 22nd June he would find a list of papers with the notification, "The undermentioned papers have been presented by Command; copies will be delivered to Members applying at the Office for the sale of Parliamentary Papers." A similar notification constantly appeared in the Votes. Formerly all papers so presented were delivered to every Member, but as the expense was very great a restriction was introduced by the late Government. The Papers wore left at Hansard's Office, and any Member wishing for them had only to call there and sign an order. The papers were delivered at his residence next day.


said, the Report of the Department of Science and Art had not yet been delivered to many Members who had applied for it.
