HC Deb 30 August 1886 vol 308 c791
MR. COBB (Warwick, S.E., Rugby)

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether any statement has yet been received from Sir Arthur Gordon as to the case of "Bryce v. Rusden;" and, if so, whether such statement will be published?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

Sir Arthur Gordon has not been called upon for any explanations, but did address a despatch to Lord Granville observing upon the remarks made by counsel in the case of "Bryce v. Rusden." It was written for the information of the Secretary of State only, and Lord Granville decided that it should not be published. I see no reason for re-opening the matter.
