said, he wished to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education, Whether he can state when the replies of our Legations to the questions addressed to them on the subject of technical education abroad will be in the hands of Members?


said, in reply, that the Reports from the Secretaries of Legation were already in type, and formed a thick octavo volume. Of the documents which were transmitted therewith precis were being made in English. About half of these documents, on upwards of 2,500 printed pages, had been finished by the translators, and reduced to about 200 pages of printed matter. The other half would be finished in about two months. The countries of which the translations were complete were Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Bavaria, Prussia, and the Hanse Towns. France was partly finished. There remained to be done Switzerland, Austria, and the greater part of France.
