§ MR. W. M'ARTHUR (for Mr. P. A. TAYLOR)
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether the new rules affecting the admission of reporters within prisons permit their presence at coroners' inquests held within the walls; and, if he has any objection to lay a Copy of those Rules upon the Table of the House?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY,
in reply, said, that there were no new Rules on the subject. He had made inquiries of the Prison Commissioners, and he was informed that, so far as they knew, no application had been made for the admission of reporters to be present at the coroners' inquests, and no orders had been issued one way or the other.
