HC Deb 05 May 1885 vol 297 cc1646-7

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether it is the intention of Her Ma- jesty's Government to make any recognition (as in the case of General Gordon's family) to the family of the late Mr. Frank Power, who performed important duties to the British Government at Khartoum, and who subsequently lost his life in attempting to leave that city at the request of General Gordon, and in company with Colonel Stewart?


If the hon. Member will kindly allow me, I will answer this Question. The matter is under the consideration of the Government, and I have already been in communication with some hon. Members of the House on the subject. I shall be very glad also to communicate with the hon. Member.
