MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether he can inform the House when the first instalment of the new edition of the Revised Statutes will be ready for issue, and at what price per volume they will be published?

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

The editor hopes to be able to return the last proofs of the first volume to the printers to-day; and, if this is done, the volume ought to be published in a fortnight at latest. The price will be 7s. 6d.


asked, whether it would not be possible to make the price of the volume 5s.?


I do not know, but I will inquire.
