HC Deb 27 October 1884 vol 293 c252

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If and when the unpublished Report of the Royal Commission on the Defence of British Possessions and Commerce Abroad, which was presented in July 1882, and on which the Inspector of Fortifications has based his Memorandum, will be laid before Parliament?


I can only refer the hon. Member to an answer which I gave on the 6th of April, 1883, to a similar Question, when I stated that the Report on the Colonial Defences was strictly confidential, and could not be laid on the Table of the House.
