HC Deb 10 August 1866 vol 184 c2165

In reply to a Question from Mr. Alderman LUSK, on behalf of Mr. Oliphant,


said, it was quite a mistake to suppose that he had promised to produce the Papers relating to the alleged acts of cruelty committed in the Shoreditch Workhouse. What he had said was, that if the hon. Member for Stirling (Mr. Oliphant) thought proper to move for these Papers, he (Mr. Hardy) would not resist the Motion. But he found on going to his office that morning that some additional Papers had been received, which he had not had time to peruse. As those Papers might necessitate further correspondence it was therefore obvious that the Papers were not in a fit condition to lay before the House.
