HC Deb 25 June 1868 vol 192 c2135

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Petition presented to the Lords of the Treasury by the Acting Examining Officers in Her Majesty's Customs, praying to be heard before the Committee of Inquiry, will be granted?


, in reply, said, he was unable to answer the Question of the hon. Member precisely, and could only say generally that the petition had been received and considered, and would again come under consideration in due course. He could not say that as yet any decision had been come to respecting it, nor could he say that the Commission would be able to examine the officers personally; but the subject at all events was under consideration.
