HC Deb 11 June 1868 vol 192 cc1397-8

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether there is any truth in the Reports which have appeared in the public journals that Sir Charles Darling has withdrawn his letter announcing his retirement from the public service, with a view to receiving a pension under the Colonial Governors Act?


It is true, Sir, and will appear in the promised additional Victoria Papers, that Sir Charles Darling has written to express his wish to retract his relinquishment of the Queen's service, which, he had been told, must be the inevitable concomitant of his accepting any grant from the Colony.
