Page 7 has a brief item from Parliament headed: "Botany Bay" reading: "Mr. Hussey asked whether it was the intention of Ministers to prosecute the scheme of forming a settlement in Botany Bay? Mr. Pitt said that from the accounts hitherto received from the Colony, they saw no reason for abandoning it."
