I explained to my hon. Friend on a previous occasion that the Report would be laid on the Table of the House as soon as there had been time for it to reach the Colonies concerned. The Report was despatched by last week's mail, with a request that its receipt should be acknowledged by telegraph. As soon as these replies have been received from the Governors concerned, immediate arrangements will be made for it to be laid.

Was the hon. Gentleman authorised to give any pledge of his recent tour in reference to the future fiscal system of this country?

I do not think that arises out of this question. The hon. and gallant Gentleman knows the answer to it as well as I do. If he puts down a formal question, I will answer it.
