§ MR. P. O'BRIEN (Monaghan, N.)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, What is the explanation of the delay in presenting Mr. Knipe's Report to Members, and when it will be laid upon the Table of the House?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
The hon. Gentleman asks me what is the reason of the delay in presenting Mr. Knipe's Report to Members. My answer is that the fact that Mr. Knipe dissented from the Report of the other Commissioners would, I think, load to some delay in the presentation of his Report, a delay for which Her Majesty's Government are in no way responsible, and with which they had nothing to do.
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
I believe it is in print, but I am not able to say positively when it will be presented.
