HC Deb 04 April 1895 vol 32 c911
MR. JOHN ELLIS (Nottingham, Ruschcliffe)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, whether the assurance given on 11th February that the House would be in possession of the Report of the Opium Commission before Easter will be realised?


The Secretary of State has no power to give any assurance with regard to the date at which the Royal Commission may send in their Report; but, having made inquiries, he has still reason to think that it may be presented by the 11th April.
