CAPTAIN DOXELAN (Cork, E.)
On behalf of the honourable Member for North Leitrim I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ire- 86 land whether he is aware that Reports of Minutes of Evidence given before Parliamentary Committees on Irish Railway Bills are not supplied to any public libraries in Ireland; and will he, for the convenience of persons in Ireland interested in such matters, give instructions that copies of such evidence be sent to the Royal Irish Academy, Trinity College Library, and to the National Library, Kildare Street, Dublin?
§ MR. ATKINSON
Reports of Minutes of Evidence given before Parliamentary Committees on Railway Bills are not printed at the public expense, and are not at the disposal of the Government. It is, therefore, not in my power to do what is suggested in the second paragraph of the Question.
