§ MR. A. MILLS
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether his attention has been called to a paragraph in the "Daily News" of Monday last, purporting to give an abstract of a Despatch addressed to Lord Norman by on the subject of the Constitutional Crisis in the Colony of Victoria; whether that abstract is correct; and, whether it is intended to lay the Despatch alluded to upon the Table of the House?
§ SIR MICHAEL HICKS-BEACH
My attention has been called to the statement in question. The abstract is incorrect in several important particulars; and the despatch will be shortly laid on the Table, probably before it is received in Victoria.
