§ MR. FINIGAN
begged to give Notice that he should ask the First Lord of the Treasury, If he would lay upon the Table of the House a Copy of the Letter which he referred to on Thursday, in his reply to a Question, addressed to the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, the President of the Royal Commission on Agriculture, intimating the intention of Her Majesty's Government to appoint a Special Royal Commission to inquire into the Irish Land Act of 1870, and which statement was laid before the Royal Commission at the meeting on Wednesday.
said, he might save his hon. Friend some trouble by stating that if he liked to move for it, there would be no objection to its production.
§ MR. SEXTON
said, that, perhaps, the Chief Secretary for Ireland would not object to state whether the Royal Commission would be instructed to report with a view to legislation next year?
§ MR. W. E. FORSTER
replied, that he had not heard of the Question until that morning, so he must ask if it appeared in the Notice Paper yesterday?
