HC Deb 18 June 1874 vol 220 c70

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he is aware that since he replied to the hon. Member for Swansea's (Mr. Dillwyn's) Question, touching the late disturbance at Leamington Station, Lord Aylesford has sent a written apology to the Great Western Railway Company for his "over zeal," and has also paid a sum of money to the railway servants with whom he came into collision; and, whether the Military authorities intend to take any further steps in the matter?


Yes, Sir, the hon. Member for Swansea was good enough to show me some correspondence, which I have no doubt is accurate, and from which it appears that Lord Aylesford has made an apology for his indiscretion, and that he has paid something to the railway officials with whom he came into collision; but it is not on account of his having made an apology that I think it necessary to take any further steps in connection with the military authorities.
