HC Deb 06 March 1896 vol 38 c360
MR.W. FIELD (Dublin, St. Patrick)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he will, in the present Session, arrange that Irish printers shall obtain the printing of Returns and Reports, compiled by Irish Government officials and relating to Ireland, which are not at present printed in that country, such as School Returns, National Education, Commissions of the Peace, Labourers' Act Cottages Returns, etc., Land Acts Reports, etc.?


In my answer to a question put by the hon. Member on the 25th February, I explained the position as regards Parliamentary papers. As regards non-Parliamentary papers printed for Irish Departments, I understand that, as a matter of course, the printing is done in Ireland; but if the hon. Member will show me specimens of the papers which he alludes to as having been printed in England, I shall be happy to have the matter investigated.
