HC Deb 16 July 1863 vol 172 c869

said, he would now beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, Whether he will lay the proceedings respecting Corporal Blake before the House?


said, in reply, that he was unable to do so, as it was not the practice to send the proceedings of Regimental Courts Martial in India to England. As it was stated, however, that the proceedings of the Court Martial referred to by the hon. Gentleman would have a material bearing on the trial of Colonel Crawley, he had sent out to India for the facts of the case, and had also forwarded directions that any witness who could afford information on the subject should be sent to England to give evidence at the Court Martial on Colonel Crawley.
