HC Deb 08 May 1809 vol 14 cc408-9
Lord Morpeth

rose and observed, that it was a matter of public regret that the female part of that gallant general's family were not provided for in such manner as could be wished; and requested to know whether any measures had been taken for that purpose, in consequence of what had fallen from the noble lord (Castlereagh) on a former night.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer

answered, that it was certainly the intention of government to make the kind of provision now alluded to by the noble lord; but on this being intimated to the female part of general Moore's family, they expressed a wish that any provision intended for them might be transferred to a male branch of their family; and it was therefore the intention of his majesty's ministers to recommend that the provision be made for the brother of sir John Moore, whom the rest of the family wished to receive it.
