§ MR. JOSEPH CHAMBERLAIN (Birmingham, W.)
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to continue the publication of the Kew Bulletin, and if so, why it has been temporarily suspended; and what is the net annual cost to the nation of this publication?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. PLUNKET,) Dublin University
It is the intention of the Government to continue the publication of the Kew Bulletin, which we believe is much valued by many persons both in this country and the colonies. The delay in the issue of this month's number was due to some temporary difficulties, but it will, I hope, be regularly brought out in future. There is at present a small annual loss of about £30 a year on the publication of the Bulletin.
