HC Deb 08 June 1874 vol 219 cc1155-6

asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, When the Papers relating to the late rebellion in Natal, and the measures taken for its suppression, will be laid upon the Table of the House?


Sir, considerable progress has been made with the preparation of these Papers, but the Secretary of State is still awaiting replies to some Despatches which it is desirable should appear along with the earlier Correspondence. I am in hopes that they will shortly come to hand, when no time will be lost in presenting them to Parliament. I am unable to say with any certainty when the answers will arrive; but if they are not received at an early date, measures will be taken with a view of expediting the completion of the Correspondence.
