HC Deb 24 July 1862 vol 168 c738

said, he would beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Why the House Telegraph, published in the Lobby several times in the course of the evening, being a newspaper, is not compelled to register and to enter into recognizances in accordance with the Act 6 & 7 Will. IV., c. 76, and the Act 60 Geo. III., c. 9?


said, the publication in question came, he supposed, within the definition of a newspaper given in the Act of Parliament. But whether a jury, who would have to decide in part, would be likely to come to the conclusion that it ought to be looked upon in that light, he was unable to say.
