HC Deb 01 May 1809 vol 14 cc290-1
Mr. Whitbread

put a question respecting M. Charmilly, whose name had been frequently mentioned in a late debate in that house; and, as the subject had reference to the Spanish question, he thought it necessary to receive an answer, before the discussion on that question should take place. M. Charmilly, he understood, was in the half-pay of the British establishment as a lieutenant-colonel; and rumours were afloat, that he had also, in addition to his half-pay, received a pension. The object of his question, therefore, was to ascertain the fact, whether or not that gentleman had such a provision.

Mr. Huskisson

replied, that M. Charmilly was allowed to receive his full pay; and that he was not aware of any other provision having been made for that gentleman.

Mr. Whitbread

then gave notice of a motion for tomorrow relative to this subject.
