HC Deb 22 July 1844 vol 76 cc1190-2
Captain Polhill

begged to ask the right hon. Baronet the Home Secretary whether there was any foundation for the reports contained in the public papers relative to the commutation of the sentence on Dalmas, and also whether he had any objection to lay upon the Table of the House, the certificates and reports of the medical men who had visited Dalmas in prison by order of the Government.

Sir J. Graham

said, that he was not aware of the purport of the Reports to which the hon. and gallant Member alluded; he had no objection to say generally that he had advised Her Majesty to reprieve Dalmas, but he should most certainly object to lay upon the Table of that House any information by which he was guided in tendering that advice.
