§ VISCOUNT SIDMOUTH
asked, If the noble Earl the Secretary of State for the Colonies could lay on the Table of House the Correspondence with the Colonies in respect to the defence of coaling stations?
§ THE EARL OF DERBY
, in reply, suggested that the noble Viscount should take the opportunity, which the Government would be happy to afford him, of looking through the Papers before they were produced. He was inclined to think that there some were of them which, in 1839 the circumstances of the present moment, it would not be in the interest of the Public Service to make public.
