HC Deb 12 June 1888 vol 326 cc1831-2
SIR JOHN SWIN BURNE (Staffordshire, Lichfield)

asked the first Lord of the Treasury, Whether he will cause the inquiry into the Lichfield Charities, which is ordered to be held on June 20, 1888, to take place at 7 p.m. in lieu of 2 p.m., in order to admit of the poor and labouring portion of the inhabitants of the City of Lichfield giving evidence without losing half a day's labour?

MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland Penrith)

Perhaps the hon. Baronet will allow me to answer this Question. In accordance with the usual practice the Inspector will be prepared to adjourn the inquiry upon application being made to hint on behalf of any persons desirous of giving evidence, and who may be unable to be present at 2 p.m.
