I have not, yet received the Report, but I hope that I shall very shortly. As to its publication, that will have to be considered when I have received it.

In view of the fact that this Report represents two years' work on the part of this Committee, does the right hon. Gentleman not think it is of sufficient importance to have it published, irrespective of his own opinions as to the value of the Report?
