HC Deb 28 July 1859 vol 155 c521

drew the attention of the House to some circumstances connected with the guarantee given two years ago to an advance of £500,000 to the colony of New Zealand, upon what he believed to be incorrect evidence on the part of Mr. Sewell. A letter had been received, signed by several members of the Legislature and the Speaker, pointing out the inaccuracies to which he had alluded.


said, his own impression was that there had been an absence of frankness on the part of Mr. Sewell; but there had not been such a suppression of facts as could have affected the decision of the Committee or the action of Parliament

Motion agreed to.

House in Committee.
