HC Deb 12 November 1888 vol 330 cc912-3
MR. HENRY H. FOWLER (Wolverhampton, E.)

Before the Adjournment of August a Return was promised relative to the emoluments of the Attorney and Solicitor Generals. I would ask the First Lord of the Treasury why this Return, which does not occupy two foolscap pages, is not yet printed and in the hands of hon. Members?

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

I exceedingly regret that the Return has been so long delayed; but, as the right hon. Gentleman is very well aware, the Government are not responsible for the delay. The information is available for the House, and is literally on the Table of the House; and if the House desires to proceed with the Vote there is no reason why it should not do so.
