THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
; I wish to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to the statement he made in the earlier part of the evening, Whether the Government intend to lay on the Table further Papers relating to South Africa, and when he expects that they may be in our hands? I should also like to ask, When further Papers may be expected relating to affairs in Egypt?
§ MR. CHAMBERLAIN
I wish to ask, If the Papers which are to be laid on the Table in reference to South Africa will contain the instructions given to Sir Garnet Wolseley?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
I have already stated that the Papers relating to South Africa will be laid on the Table before the House rises to-morrow, and I hope they will be in the hands of Members in a few days, but I can hardly say off-hand what they will contain. With regard to the other Question, I believe that further Papers with regard to the affairs of Egypt are being prepared, and that they also will be in the hands of Members in a few days.
