HC Deb 19 April 1877 vol 233 c1447

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, When the results of the observations of the transit of Venus and the reports of the Expeditions may be expected to be laid before Parliament?


in reply, said, that he was informed that the calculations were in such a forward state of preparedness that they would be ready for publication in six weeks; but the topographical reports would not be ready for some months. He was in communication with the Astronomer Royal as to whether it would be worth while to publish the one without the other.
