HC Deb 12 March 1889 vol 333 cc1507-8
MR. JOHNSTON (Belfast, S.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he has seen a letter in the Freeman's Journal of yesterday, purporting to be signed by Michael Davitt, reflecting upon the injured innocence of Sir William Harcourt, and whether there is any reason to believe this letter is a wicked forgery?


Mr. Speaker, may I ask you, Sir, whether it is proper that a Question of this kind, reflecting upon a Member of the House, should be put without notice?


The Question is one that cannot be put.
