HC Deb 22 May 1879 vol 246 c1013

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, When Sir P. Julian's Report on Maltese matters is to be laid before Parliament, and why the Papers as to the Maltese Riots of 15th May last, promised on the 20th March, have not yet been laid upon the Table?


, in reply, said, that the Report related to the Maltese Civil Service, and that it had only recently reached the Government; but he could not say positively whether he would be able to lay it on the Table. It must first be laid before the Council of Malta, whom it primarily concerned. He regretted that Papers as to the riots, presented on the 15th of May last, had not yet been circulated; but they would be in the hands of hon. Members in a few days.
