HC Deb 06 August 1888 vol 329 c1687
MR. MILVAIN (Durham)

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Whether his attention has been called to a confession relating to a burglary committed at Edlingham Vicarage, in the County of Northumberland, in 1879, for which two men were in that year convicted; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


Yes, Sir; my attention has been called to what purports to be a confession in this case; and I have authorized the Treasury Solicitor to take a statement from the man who is alleged to have made the confession, in case he be willing to make such a statement.
