§ MR. CRILLY () Mayo, N.
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if his attention has been drawn to the fact that a volume of historical manuscripts, in continuation of those already issued by the Historical Manuscripts Commission, has appeared as an independent volume issued exclusively by the House of Lords, and that Members of the House of Commons have not received this volume; and whether he will make arrangements that this volume will be issued to Members of the House of Commons amongst their Parliamentary Papers, as previous volumes have been issued.
§ SIR J. W. MACLURE () Lancashire, Stretford
I beg at the same time to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether copies of the House of Lords Manuscripts, Volume 1 (New Series), 1693-1695, will he made available for Members of the House of Commons in the same way as to Members of the Upper House.
§ MR. HANBURY
Although these manuscripts are now being calendered and issued at the expense of the Vote for the House of Lords, the expenditure of the Historical MSS. Commission being restricted to documents in private hands, I think they are practically a portion of the general series, and I will arrange for their issue to Members in the same way as the other volumes.
