HC Deb 19 April 1858 vol 149 cc1264-5

said, he wished to ask the Attorney General for Ireland whether he has had any communication with the Chairman of the late Commission of Inquiry into Corrupt Practices at Elections for Galvan concerning the Bill before the House, and any proposed amendment thereof; and, if so, whether he will lay the correspondence upon the table, or state the purport of it to the House?


said, he had had no correspondence with the learned gentleman. who was the Chairman of the late Commission, but had seen him on the first day of term, and the learned gentleman was good enough to give him a copy of the Report laid before that House, and to draw his attention to certain portions of the evidence which would assist him in separating the guilty from the innocent voters, with a view to perform the pledge already given to the House by his hon. find learned Friend on this subject.
