§ MR. SCHWANN (Manchester, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies when he will distribute to Members the report of the Governor of Ceylon on the working of the Land Ordinances Act of 1897, in that island.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
Papers relating to the Waste Lands Ordinances and Mr. Le Mesurier's complaints will be laid before the House as soon as they can be printed. The papers are somewhat voluminous, and there may be longer delay than I had contemplated, but the matter is being pressed forward as much as possible.
