HC Deb 06 March 1885 vol 295 c296

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If he could explain how it was that the Report of the Royal Commission on Trawling was in The Times on Wednesday, and all the Scottish papers yesterday, and had not yet been delivered to the Members of this House; and, whether the blame rested on the printer at the Home Office?


in reply, said, he must inform his hon. and gallant Friend that there was no printer at the Home Office. When Reports of Commissions were presented, they were printed under the direction of this House. If his hon. and gallant Friend had given him a day's Notice, he would have inquired into the matter; but he would now ascertain for him what had happened in regard to this Report.
