§ MR. ATKINSON (Boston)
May I ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the certificate in reference to the matter of Mr. De Cobain was signed by a gentleman who was not qualified by law as a medical practitioner?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN, St. George's, Hanover Square)
I think the hon. Gentleman is in error. The gentleman referred to was qualified to act as a medical practitioner both in England and in France Special inquiries have been made in regard to the matter, and it was found that the gentleman referred to is a member of the College of Surgeons and also a licentiate of the College of Physicians.
§ [No answer was given to the question.]
