HC Deb 04 May 1877 vol 234 c319

asked why it was—as the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of State for the Home Department promised—that counsel did not attend the investigation into the mine explosion at Tynewydd?


in reply, said, that he was glad the hon. Gentleman had called his attention to the subject. He had given orders more than a week ago, through the Secretary of the Treasury, that counsel were to attend the inquest, and he had sent a message to ascertain why counsel had not attended. He could not imagine the slightest reason why his instructions had not been carried out. He would, however, make inquiries.
