HC Deb 09 August 1876 vol 231 cc878-9

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether there is any and what objection to return to Elizabeth Jury, a daughter of George Orton, certain oil paintings, viz., the portraits of her father and mother, which were lent by her for the use of the Court in the late Trial at Bar of the Tichborne Claimant, and as to which repeated application have been made in vain to all the authorities concerned in the matter?


in reply, said, that technically the hon. Gentleman had given him Notice of his Question by the mere fact of his having placed it on the Paper of the House; but until five minutes ago, when he entered the House, he had not seen it. So far as his memory was concerned, he could not charge it with a knowledge of anything about Mrs. Jury's paintings, but he would make inquiry into the matter.


said, he would repeat his Question to-morrow.
