HC Deb 12 April 1886 vol 304 c1316
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.


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.
