HC Deb 27 March 1882 vol 268 c34

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can give information as to the time when the Report of the Royal Commission on Agriculture may be expected to be in the hands of Members?


in reply, said, he had himself no information as to the time at which the Report might be expected. The Clerk of the Commission, who had no information, was, so far as he knew, the only gentleman officially connected with the Commission who was in town. That gentleman informed the Government that the Chairman and the Secretary and the Assistant Secretary were all out of town, and he had been unable to obtain any information in regard to the Report. There were, he believed, several Members of the Commission in the House, and he should therefore recommend his hon. Friend to address his Question to one of these hon. Gentlemen.
