HC Deb 03 August 1882 vol 273 c603

asked the President of the Board of Trade, When the Statistical Inquiry Committee that is examining into the subject of the better classification of butter, oleomargarine and other butter substitutes, is likely to issue its report; and, whether he will communicate the result of that inquiry to the House?


, in reply, said, he was informed that the Committee was now considering its Report, which would probably be ready in a few days. It dealt with a great many matters besides those referred to in the Question. The Committee had been appointed by the Treasury, which would have to decide whether the Report was of sufficient public interest to have it presented to the House.
