§ SIR W. HARCOURT (Monmouthshire, W.)
I have to ask about the circulation of the Papers dealing with China. They were promised on Thursday or Friday, but we have not yet got them.
THE FIRST LORD OF THIS TREASURY
The delay which, I regret, has arisen from the fact that one of the foreign Governments concerned made some small objection, which involved a change in the Blue Book at the last moment; but I had hoped, in spite of that, to have the Papers in the hands of hon. Members this afternoon. I will make inquiries.
