HC Deb 16 August 1887 vol 319 c677
MR. F. S. POWELL (Wigan)

asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether it is intended to reprint, without delay, such volumes of the Report on Technical Instruction as are out of print, or are likely to be out of print at an early date?


I understand that the number of copies remaining of the First and Second Reports of the Royal Commission on Technical Instruction is very small; and if there should prove to be a large demand for them I shall be prepared to give directions for reprinting them for sale in a convenient form. With regard to the four volumes of Appendices to the Reports of the Commissioners, the supply of copies on hand is sufficient to obviate any immediate necessity for reprinting.

MR. LAWSON (St. Pancras, W.)

Arising out of this Question, will the First Lord of the Treasury say if the Technical Instruction Bill is to be proceeded with this Session; and, if so, when? ["Order, order!"]

THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I am not prepared to give an answer at this moment.
