§ MR. HOLDEN (Walsall)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade when the annual statement of the trade of the United Kingdom with foreign countries and British Possessions for the year 1891 will be issued; and whether some means cannot be adopted to have this Return presented in future earlier in the Session?
§ * THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir M. HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
It is expected that the annual statement of trade for 1891 will be issued early next month. The 865 date of publication has been accelerated in recent years, and I hope next year will show a further improvement.
