§ MR. E. ROBERTSON (Dundee)
asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether Her Majesty's Advisers have yet completed their Report on the subject of Royal Grants?
§ MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)
asked, when the Government intend to redeem the pledge repeatedly given that a Select Committee would be appointed to inquire into the subject of Royal Grants?
§ THE FIRST LORD (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)
The communications that are passing between Her Majesty's Advisers and Her Majesty on the subject of Royal grants have not yet been concluded; but I hope to be in a position to make a statement to the House on the subject in the early part of the next Session.
§ MR. E. ROBERTSON
asked, whether the right hon. Gentleman did not announce some weeks ago that a Report had been presented to Her Majesty on the subject?
§ MR. W. H. SMITH
said, that was the case; but the communications between Her Majesty and her Advisers were still proceeding.
