HC Deb 10 March 1891 vol 351 c599
MR. STEPHENS (Middlesex, Hornsey)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a Paper, containing various statements in support of the Inflammable Liquids Bill, printed at the Foreign Office on the 2nd of this month, but presenting no other indication of its origin, has been issued upon his authority; and, if not, whether the Paper may nevertheless be accepted as an official Memorandum of explanation in support of the Inflammable Liquids Bill?


Yes, Sir; the Memorandum mentioned by my hon. Friend was prepared by my authority, and may be treated as a short and explanatory statement upon certain points on which information appeared to be desired. A much fuller Memorandum, as I have already stated, will shortly be laid upon the Table of the House.
