HC Deb 20 February 1872 vol 209 cc771-2

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether he has received two Memorials in favour of the Contagious Diseases Acts, one of them signed by nearly a hundred members of the medical profession residing in London, and the other signed by about twelve hundred members of the same profession; and, if so, whether he will lay those Memorials upon the Table?


, in reply, said, the fact was that there was only one memorial, but there was a series of signatures. One portion of it had reached him some time ago with 87 signatures, and since then he had received another portion of it with 1,000 additional signatures. He would produce the document if it were moved for.
