HC Deb 03 July 1913 vol 54 cc2191-2
63. Mr. MOUNT

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state when the Report of Mr. Wyatt on the Welsh Disestablishment commutation scheme, from which he quoted on the 30th June, will be laid upon the Table of the House?


I do not propose to lay the Report referred to on the Table. As I stated last Monday, I quoted Mr. Wyatt only for the figures which I gave to the House. On the question of policy Mr. Wyatt has not advised me, nor has he any responsibility for any conclusions which the Government may draw from his figures.


Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware that it is a rule of the House that a document from which something is cited ought to be laid upon the Table?


I have refreshed my memory by looking up the practice, and I cannot find it would apply in this case.
