HC Deb 28 July 1890 vol 347 cc1054-5
MR. DAVID THOMAS (Merthyr Tydvil)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury upon whose recommendation the senior Member for Devonport (Sir J. Puleston) has been appointed to the constableship of Carnarvon Castle, as successor to the late Lord Canarvon; and whether he is in a position to state the grounds which led to a disregard of the expressed wish of the Carnarvon Town Council in the matter? I would also ask whether it is the fact that the hon. Member (Sir J. Puleston) has appointed the Conservative agent as Deputy Constable?


The appointment of the senior Member for Devon-port as Constable of Carnarvon Castle was made by the Crown on the recommendation of the Prime Minister, to whom questions of this nature should be addressed in another place.

SIR J. PULESTON (Devonport)

There is no foundation for the statement made by the hon. Gentleman, who has made me the subject of a question without precedent in this House.
