§ MR. POWELL
said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether the Reports for 1868 of (1.) Committee of Council on Education; (2.) Science and Art Department; (3.) Medical Officer of Privy Council, are to be published during this Session; and, if so, when; and, whether he can assign any reason why the publication of these Reports have been thus delayed until after the Votes to which they have reference?
§ LORD ROBERT MONTAGU
, in reply, said, that the reason why the Report for 1868 of the Committee of Council on Education had not been published until after the Education Vote was asked for was that the Vote was taken this year many weeks earlier than usual. The Report of the Science and Art Department would be published in a few days. The Report of the Medical Officer of Privy Council had been delayed in consequence of the coloured engravings, but it would shortly be in the hands of Members.
