HC Deb 17 July 1888 vol 328 cc1532-3
MR. PHILIPPS (Lanark, Mid)

said, that he was not in the House when the right hon. Gentleman the Secretary of State for the Home Department was speaking on Monday evening, on the subject of Trafalgar Square; but he saw in most of the newspapers that the right hon. Gentleman accused him of inciting to riot in the Square, and also stated that his case was under the consideration of the police. As he did not go near the Square on the occasion in question, he thought the right hon. Gentleman must have made a mistake.


said, he regretted that he had been misreported in the papers. He was sure he had not mentioned the hon. Member's name—even by a slip of the tongue—and it was far from his intention to do so.
