HC Deb 18 February 1846 vol 83 c1146

asked Her Majesty's Government whether it was their intention to lay upon the Table copies of the Papers received from those guardians of Poor Law Unions who had remonstrated against the practice of bone grinding? The right hon. Baronet (Sir James Graham) had informed the House, on a late occasion, that there were nine boards of guardians who had expressed a wish to continue the practice until their stocks had been exhausted, and that he had given them the desired permission. He now wished to know, also, when the Papers relative to those nine cases, which the right hon. Baronet had promised, would be laid upon the Table.


thought it would hardly be wise to raise any discussion on the subject referred to by the hon. and gallant Member at the present moment. If the hon. and gallant Member had given him notice of the question he intended to put, he (Mr. M. Sutton) would have been prepared with a reply. He was at present unable to give an answer, but he would make inquiry.

House adjourned shortly after One o'clock.
