HC Deb 04 March 1870 vol 199 c1238

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether the Returns called for by him from the different Highway Boards are completed; and, whether he will lay them upon the Table of the House?


said, in reply, that the Papers to which the hon. Member referred could scarcely be called Returns. A number of questions had been sent out to the Highway Boards, and in many cases answers to them had been received. All these could not be printed; but a useful Return might be prepared from the materials contained in the questions and answers, and he would confer privately with the hon. Gentleman, and endeavour to arrange the form of such Return.
