§ MR. WEIR
To ask the Postmaster-General if he will state when the Report of the Postmaster-General will be issued, and can arrangements be made for the Report to be issued earlier in the session in future.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) My Report for the year ended March 31st, 1905, is in the hands of the printers, and will, I hope, be issued early next week. Every effort is made to issue the Report as early as possible; but the preparation of the elaborate series of statistics on which the Report is based necessarily occupies some time after the completion of the financial year.
