HC Deb 21 July 1842 vol 65 cc399-400
Mr. C. Berkeley

said, that the right hon. Secretary for the Home Department had made a statement, in answer to a question from the Member for Bath, with reference to the magistrates of Cheltenham, respecting a person named Holyoke, at which they felt much hurt. He was directed on the part of the magistrates who composed the board of petty sessions at which the conversation complained of took place, to ask the right hon. Baronet whether he had any objection to print the correspondence with the votes: and in case the right hon. Baronet objected, he was authorized to state that the magistrates were willing to submit the correspondence to the hon. and learned Member for Bath.

Sir. J. Graham

The hon. Gentleman has quoted a most correct report of what had passed. I said, that some irregularities took place, but I did not attribute them to the magistrates. I must decline ordering the correspondence to be printed with the votes.
