§ MR. LONSDALE
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether, having regard to the importance of the evidence given in the course of the inquiry into the working of the Department of Agriculture and Technical Instruction, and its possible bearing on future legislation, he will arrange for the immediate presentation to the House of the official minutes of evidence taken before the committee of inquiry.
§ MR. BIRRELL
I cannot see that any useful purpose would be served by the presentation of the evidence without the Report. I have already stated, on the authority of the Chairman of the Committee of Inquiry, that the Report will be presented at the earliest possible moment.
