§ MR. OCTAVIUS MORGAN (Battersea)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, When the Report of the Royal Commission appointed to inquire into the Depression of Trade and Industry is likely to be issued?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Lord RANDOLPH CHURCHILL) (Paddington, S.)
I have made inquiry and I understand the Commissioners are now considering their Report. But it is difficult to say accurately the exact period at which the Report will be issued. There may, moreover, be some technical difficulty as to the publication of the Report when Parliament is not sitting. It may have to be laid in dummy, or it may be issued by the Stationery Office, if it is to be brought before the public. But both these proceedings are rather irregular, and I am at present considering how the difficulties attending them may be overcome.
