HC Deb 22 June 1832 vol 13 cc960-1
Mr. Dawson

wished to correct a misrepresentation which had been put forth in The Times newspaper. He was there represented to have applied the term "shameful" to the reports contained in Hansard's Parliamentary Debates, which was so far from being the case, that he at the time gave the highest degree of credit to Hansards Debates for fidelity. He had found fault with The Times and other newspapers for reporting debates in the manner they were done, and he had contrasted them with Hansard's; he, therefore, took that opportunity of saying, that The Times had made an unfounded statement of his observations on Hansard, who, he must repeat, deserved great credit for the manner in which the debates were reported in his work.
