HC Deb 03 August 1888 vol 329 c1399
MR. MILVAIN (Durham)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention has been called to an article published in The Durham Chronicle of July 13, 1888, upon a scandal at the condition of Whitton Gilbert Churchyard, in the County of Durham; whether he will cause inquiries to be made into the truth of the allegations contained in the said article; and, whether, if found to be correct, the facts are such as will justify him in closing the churchyard?


Yes, Sir; my attention has been called to this matter. I have directed the Inspector of Burial Grounds to hold an inquiry into the state of this churchyard at the earliest possible date.
