HC Deb 23 February 1885 vol 294 c1052

said, that before the adjournment the Prime Minister undertook to lay before the House the despatch which the Government had sent to Lord Wolseley defining the positions which that General and General Gordon would occupy relatively to each other should they meet. He wished to know how it was that the despatch in question was not contained in the Blue Book?


replied, that the hon. Member's recollection of the matter did not tally with his own. He must ask the hon. Member for Notice of the Question.
