HC Deb 10 August 1866 vol 184 cc2165-6

said, he rose to move for an Address for Copies of all the Correspondence which has taken place between Members of the Government and Mr. Rigby Wason in relation to the appointment of Sir FitzRoy Kelly to be Lord Chief Baron of the Exchequer; and of any Correspondence between the Members of Government and Sir FitzRoy Kelly upon the same subject.


said, he had no objection to the first part of the Motion; but as the second part related to communications made to him by the Lord Chief Baron which were of a private character, he (Mr. Walpole) could not assent to their production. There might be an investigation into the matter in another Session, and in that case he thought that the Lord Chief Baron should have an opportunity of considering what answer he should make.
