§ MR. R. G. WEBSTER (St. Pancras, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board, when the Return the House granted last Session of the illiterates who voted at the last General Election will be issued; and when the Return of the expenses of candidates at the last General Election, also ordered by the House last Session, will be issued?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
I hope that the Return relating to illiterates will be presented in about a week and issued in a fortnight. With regard to the Return of Expenses all possible steps with a view to its early completion are being taken, and I hope it may be presented shortly.
