§ Sir. G. TREVELYAN (Glasgow, Bridgeton)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the House of Lords would be willing to communicate to the authorities of this House the titles of Returns and Papers, relating to matters of public interest, which are printed by order of the House of Lords; and whether the titles of those Returns could be brought to the notice of Members of this House in the same manner as in the case of Returns printed by order of this House?
§ A LORD OF THE TREASURY (Sir H. MAXWELL,) Wigton
Arrangements are being made under which a file of Lords Papers will be kept in the Vote Office for the convenience of hon. Members desiring to consult them, and any hon. Member requiring a copy of any particular Paper can receive it on notifying his desire to the clerk in the Vote Office. It would be neither convenient nor consistent with the regulations affecting the printing and distribution of Lords Papers to place their titles on the pink papers circulated with the Votes and Proceedings of this Honourable House; but I hope the arrangement above described will be found to fulfil the object which the right hon. Baronet has in view.
§ Sir G. TREVELYAN
I think that the utmost has been done by the Treasury to secure this object. Might I ask whether House of Lords Bills may be included in the scheme?
