§ MR. W. H. JAMES
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, If it is a fact that application has lately been made to the Charity Commissioners for the application of a portion of the revenues of Lord Crewe's charities for the development of the harbour and trade of North Sunderland; if he would state whether the Commissioners have declined to entertain the proposals of the Trustees; and, if he would have any objection to state the grounds of their refusal, and to lay the Correspondence relating to this subject upon the Table?
§ SIR WILLIAM HARCOURT
, in reply, said, that there appeared to be some misapprehension in connection with this subject. No such application as that referred to in the hon. Member's Question had been made, and, therefore, it was unnecessary to lay any Papers in relation to the matter upon the Table.
