§ VISCOUNT SIDMOUTH
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, When the new regulations relating to employment and remuneration of naval and military officers serving in the Colonies will be laid on the Table; and whether copies would be supplied to Members of the Colonial Conference?
THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (The Earl of ONSLOW)
, in reply, said, he regretted that some unavoidable delay had been caused in the prepara- 2 tion of those Papers by the fact that the printer had mixed them up with some Papers relating to another subject, and it had taken some time to eliminate them. They were now, however, in a satisfactory shape and would be sent immediately to the printer, and it was hoped that they would be ready on Wednesday. With regard to the request that the Papers should be placed in the hands of Members of the Colonial Conference, he had to inform the noble Viscount that this has been done, the Paper containing the regulations having been circulated among them, and they had expressed their satisfaction with the arrangement entered into by Her Majesty's Government, which they said had brought about a change which they had long desired, and which would be of great service and benefit to the Colonies.
§ House adjourned at a quarter before Five o'clock, to Thursday next, a quarter past Ten o'clock
