HC Deb 30 June 1890 vol 346 c334
SIR JOHN COLOMB (Tower Hamlets, Bow)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether there is any objection to furnishing the House with the Report of General Edwards on the Defences of the Australian Colonies, and the reply thereto from the War Office?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle

The Report referred to will be presented to Parliament; but it will first be necessary to communicate with the Governments of the Australian Colonies on the subject.
