§ MR. PICKERSGILL (Bethnal Green, S.W.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether Mr. Herbert Burrows, of the Inland Revenue Department, has been officially punished by the Board of Inland Revenue for taking part against the Criminal Law Amendment (Ireland) Bill, in a demonstration in Victoria Park, in May last; and, whether he will state what Regulation, if any, Mr. Burrows infringed by taking part in such meeting?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
, in reply, said, that Mr. Burrows had not been punished, but cautioned. That was done, not by the Political Heads of the Department, but by the Inland Revenue Board as a matter of internal discipline.
§ MR. PICKERSGILL
said, that he would call attention to the case when the Inland Revenue Estimates were brought on.
