HC Deb 26 May 1881 vol 261 c1315

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, When he will move for the appointment of a joint Committee of the two Houses of Parliament, as promised in another place, to inquire into the Report of the Controller of Her Majesty's Stationery Office; and, whether ho can inform the House of the scope and particular points to be referred to such Committee for decision?


I hope to be able to move in a few days for the appointment of the Committee referred to by my hon. Friend. The general object of the inquiry which. I should propose would be the existing arrangements for the printing, distribution, and sale of Acts of Parliament, Orders in Council, and Papers printed at the public expense for the information of Parliament, and for the storage of Parliamentary Papers.
