HC Deb 31 July 1868 vol 193 cc1942-3

said, he would beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether it would not be a desirable and appropriate completion of the provision made by Parliament for the support of the title conferred on Lord Napier of Magdala, if a pension equivalent to that already granted by Parliament was made to extend to Lady Napier, in case of any unforeseen contingency?


said, in reply, that the provision that had been made by Parliament on the recommendation of Her Majesty for Lord Napier of Magdala, in consideration of his eminent services, had been well considered by Her Majesty's Government with reference to all the circumstances; and therefore he could not hold out any hope that the matter would again be open to consideration.
