§ MR. ONSLOW
said, that, in moving for this Return, he wished to express a hope that, though there might be some difficulty in the matter, the hon. Gentleman the Under Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Hibbert) would issue instructions that the Return should be made out as soon as possible. The second reading of the Sale of Intoxicating Liquors on Sunday (England) Bill was down for April 2, and he did not think it was any fault of his own that the Return had not been issued before. He moved for it as an unopposed Return last year; but there was no record of its having been moved for and ordered, though he had a positive recollection of that having been done. There was now less than a month. before the Bill would come on, and he hoped the hon. Gentleman would give orders for it to be issued as soon as possible.
§ MR. HIBBERT
said, he should be very glad to expedite the issue of the Return as soon as possible; but he could not explain why it had not been previously issued.
§ Motion agreed to.
