§ MR. A. O'CONNOR (Donegal, E.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies why the Return relating, to Enforced Sales in Cyprus, ordered on the 25th July last, has not yet been rendered; and when it will be laid upon the Table?
§ THE UNDERSECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Baron H. DE WORMS,) Liverpool, East Toxteth
The materials for a Return in the terms of the Address were received some time ago; but would have been of little value without further particulars which have been asked for and promised. The delay in sending the further particulars is due to the fact that there is a scarcity of public officers. In the meantime, I can show the hon. Member what information we have.
