HC Deb 19 February 1894 vol 21 c727
MR. PAUL (Edinburgh, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he can now say when the Select Committee on the Petroleum Acts will be appointed, and what will be the terms of the Reference?


The Committee cannot be appointed until next Session; and I cannot at present say what will be the terms of the Reference. In the meantime I shall be glad to receive any suggestions which my hon. Friend or others interested in the question may be good enough to communicate to me.
