HC Deb 27 July 1888 vol 329 c674
MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, When the earlier volumes of the New and Revised Edition of the Statutes, promised to this House early in the Session of 1887, will be ready for publication; and, whether he can state to the House the cause of the delay that has arisen with respect to such publication?

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

On the 13th instant I informed the hon. Member of the causes of the delay in the issue of the Revised Statutes, and I have nothing to add to the answer I then gave.
