§ MR. H. H. MARKS (Kent, Thanet)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has now received a report from His Majesty's Consul in Chicago of his inspection of the meat-packing establishments in that city; and whether the Report will be published.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir EDWARD GREY,) Northumberland, Berwick
A report 768 has been received and is being sent to the Local Government Board for their information. It was sent by the Consul for the information of His Majesty's Government, but I am doubtful as to the desirability of publishing any report except one written by an expert specially qualified to do so.
