HC Deb 18 February 1907 vol 169 c527
MR. MURPHY (Kerry, E.)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can state the reason for the delay in issuing the bound volumes of Irish Debates and the Acts passed in the last session of Parliament.

MR. JOHN ELLIS (Nottinghamshire, Rushcliffe)

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that the usual bound and indexed copy of the Statutes for the Session of 1906 is not yet out; who is responsible for the delay, and when will it be available for Members.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman). I hope that the Irish Debates will be published by the last day of this month. The bound volumes of the Acts passed last Session will, I believe, be ready for delivery to-day. In both cases the delay is due to the prolongation of the session, but with regard to the Acts I may observe that notwithstanding the prolongation of the session a reduction of twelve days has been effected in the interval between the adjournment and the issue of the bound volumes.
