HC Deb 05 March 1891 vol 351 cc235-6

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will ascertain from the Coroner for Westminster, and state if, in the oath which under the Act of Parliament he administered to the jurors at the inquest, the late Duke of Bedford was described, consistently with the warrant and jury snmmons, as "F. Russell," or as "Francis Charles Hastings Russell," or if he was described, inconsistently with such documents, by some different name; and, if so, by what name?


I am informed by the Coroner that the jury were sworn to the full name and title of the deceased person.


May I ask what names were given? There have been several names mentioned in this case.


I have given the Coroner's exact words. I take it that the full name was the name in full.
