§ MR. J. H. DALZIEL
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury how soon he hopes to move the appointment of the Select Committee promised last Session on the subject of Government printing contracts; and whether he will consent to include within the reference to the Committee all contracts other than printing under the control of Her Majesty's Stationery Office?
§ SIR J. T. HIBBERT
I hope to be in a position to move the appointment of a Select Committee after the Easter holidays. Excepting the contract for Parliamentary reporting, which has lately been the subject of inquiry by a Select Committee, and that for the supply of envelopes, there are practically no running contracts under the Comptroller of the Stationery Office other than those dealing with printing and binding, and I am prepared to enlarge the reference so as to include both these latter subjects.
