§ Mr. Hunt
begged to ask the noble Lord opposite, whether it was the intention of his Majesty's Government to lay before the House any statement with respect to the proceedings of the Commissions that had been sent into the districts in which burnings and other disturbances had taken place; because, if his Majesty's Government had no such intention, he (Mr. Hunt) would call the attention of the House to the subject.
§ Lord Althorp
said, that it was not the intention of his Majesty's Government, of their own accord, to lay before the House any statement such as that to which the hon. Gentleman alluded.
§ Mr. Hunt
then observed, that he would take an early opportunity of moving for the production by his Majesty's Government of information respecting the proceedings of the Commissions in question. He had had an opportunity of passing through several of the disturbed districts; he had seen and heard much of the proceedings of the Commissions; and he thought it was a subject of the utmost importance, and highly deserving the attention of the House and the country.
