§ MR. HOWELL (Bethnal Green, N.E.)
My attention has been called to some words uttered by me with respect to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Whitehaven. I beg to state that I used those words under a misapprehension, and inadvertently. I beg to withdraw the charge then made, and to apologize to the right hon. Gentleman for having given him any pain whatever.
§ MR. CAVENDISH BENTINCK (Whitehaven)
After the explanation given by the hon. Member for Bethnal Green, I beg to say that I am entirely satisfied, and my Friends, who know that the charge was made without foundation, will also share my feelings on the subject.
