HC Deb 19 February 1878 vol 237 cc1923-4

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether he will lay upon the Table of the House the annual Indian Irrigation Reports, as yearly printed, circulated among Indian officials, and sent to the India Office; and, whether the Reports for at least ten years cannot be made accessible to Members, and those of 1875–7 printed for the use of Members?


in reply, said, that the Reports referred to had for the last 10 years been sent to the Library of the House. They were too bulky to be laid on the Table; but there would be no objection to the production of a small Return showing what was the exact state of things in connection with the subject. In fact, the India Office were now considering the best way of condensing them in order to furnish it.
