§ MR. BELLAIRS
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in the interests of science and public safety, he will cause to be published the investigations and Report of Lord Rayleigh's Committee, which unanimously recommended the destruction of the seized blasting explosives containing mercuric chloride; or whether he can publish such parts as can be made public without detriment to the national interests.
THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. GLAD-STONE,) Leeds, W.
I should have no objection to publishing the terms of the resolution with regard to the seized blasting explosives, which the conference passed unanimously. With this exception there is nothing in the proceedings of the conference which could usefully be made public. If my hon. friend will put down an unstarred Question the terms of the Resolution shall be given in reply to it.
