HC Deb 25 June 1902 vol 110 cc5-6
MR. JOHN ELLIS (Nottinghamshire, Rushcliff)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether the Treasury is responsible, through the Stationery Office, for the printing of the Reports of Royal Commissions after they have been presented to the Crown; and whether he can say when the Report of the recent Royal Commission on the Port and Docks of London, which wag presented to the House on the 18th June, will be obtainable by Members and the public.

(Answer) The Secretary of a Royal Commission is responsible for preparing and marking for press the final revise of the Report. The Stationery Office is responsible for the fulfilment by the printers of the terms of their contract. The Report referred to by the hon. Member will, it is hoped, be delivered on Monday morning next. The copy for press was sent to the printers, with some corrections, on Thursday last. It contains three plans which required to be lithographed and supplied to the printer to be bound up with the Report.—(Treasury.)
