HC Deb 23 June 1831 vol 4 cc276-7
Lord Duncannon

moved for leave to bring in a Bill to ascertain the boundaries of Dean Forest, and to inquire into the rights and privileges claimed by free miners, and other purposes.

Lord Granville Somerset

wished to take the present opportunity to state, that the prison of St. Leonard's, near the Forest of Dean, was in a miserable condition. He had seen a person who had been confined several months, and could have no change of air but by an order from the Justices. In such a prison, persons confined suffered dreadfully, and he trusted that some attention would be paid to his representation.

Lord Duncannon

assured the noble Lord that the subject had come under consideration, and he hoped some beneficial alterations would shortly be made.

Bill brought in.
