HC Deb 14 June 1880 vol 252 cc1897-8

asked the Secretary of State for India, Whether any inquiry has been made at the India Office in regard to the loss or abstraction from the Office of a Memorial, presented in 1868, to the then Secretary of State for India, by Mr. William Tayler, formerly Commissioner of Patna; and, if so, with what result; and, whether it is true that, in addition to the Memorial itself, five other letters referring to the Memorial, together with a printed pamphlet, forming an appendix to it, are missing from the India Office?


in reply, said, that the Memorial alluded to by the hon. Gentleman was missing from the India Office. He believed, however, that a copy of the Memorial had been printed with the Papers lately presented to the House. Four or five letters relating to the Memorial were also missing from the India Office; but a copy of the printed pamphlet forming an Appendix to the Memorial was at present in the Library of the House for the use of hon. Members who took an interest in this case.
