HC Deb 24 May 1860 vol 158 c1653

said, he wished to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether there would be any objection to the Slave Trade Papers of each year being published at an early period of the year following?


said, that the papers were not received by the Government in sufficient time to enable them to produce them at the commencement of the Session. But there would be no objection to have the information made up to the middle of each year, and laid before the House when Parliament met at the beginning of the following year.
