HC Deb 25 February 1887 vol 311 cc585-6
MR. P. O'BRIEN (Monaghan, N.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, When the Evidence taken by the Irish Land Acts Commission would be placed in the hands of Members; and, also, when the Supplementary Report, which he believed was being presented by Mr. Knipe, would be supplied?

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

in reply, said, the hon. Member was, doubtless, aware that Her Majesty's Government were not in possession of the Evidence. It was in the possession of the Commission, and had not yet been delivered to Her Majesty's Government. No time would be lost in presenting it to Parliament when it had been received. The Supplementary Report of Mr. Knipe, one of the Commissioners, had not yet been delivered to Her Majesty's Government, and he was unable to say when they would receive it.
