HC Deb 24 June 1879 vol 247 cc535-6

I wish to give Notice, Sir, that I shall postpone till Thursday next the Question which stands on the Paper in my name {see page 414) with regard to the circumstances attending the lamented death of the Prince Imperial; and I beg to state that I do so in the hope that the Mail expected from the Cape to-morrow or next day will enable the Government to put the circumstances in a more favourable light than they appear at present in the eyes of many thousands of people, who, like myself, think the circumstances in which the Prince found himself there on that occasion called, in more than an ordinary degree, for the special supervision of the military authorities.


I beg to give Notice that on Thursday I will ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether a rigid inquiry will be instituted into the circumstances immediately attending the melancholy death of the Prince Imperial?
