HC Deb 05 April 1864 vol 174 cc478-9

said, ho rose to ask the Vice President of the Council, If he will state to the House the grounds upon, which Mr. Morell has been dismissed from the office of Her Majesty's Inspector?


I am sorry, Sir, that the noble Lord has thought it necessary to put this question, because the punishment of dismissal is a very severe one, and I am unwilling to add to the pain of it by a public discussion in this House. It would be scarcely fair to Mr. Morell if I were to undertake to state ex parte the grounds on which he was dismissed; but, if the noble Lord thinks it requisite that I should do so, he can move for the Correspondence which terminated in Mr. Morell's dismissal.
