HC Deb 18 July 1881 vol 263 c1122

asked the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Whether the Report of Lord Bessborough's Commission was altered after the 4th of January last, the date on which it was signed, in consequence of the study by the Commission of the rebutting evidence subsequent to that date; and, if so, what alterations were introduced; and, whether he will request the Commission to supply the dates of the "Statements in reply to or in explanation of evidence," as well as the dates at which those statements were received back from the printers?


, in reply, said, he had no information which would enable him to answer the Question, and did not know that he had any authority to call upon the Secretary to the Commission for any explanation on the subject. The Question ought to be addressed to the hon. Member for the County of Cork (Mr. Shaw), who was a Member of the Commission, and would, no doubt, be perfectly ready to answer it.
