HC Deb 08 April 1895 vol 32 cc1159-60
MR. A. H. SMITH-BARRY (Hunts, S.)

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether he was correctly reported in The Times of the 3rd instant as having said that Mr. Justice Bewley described the Irish landlords as "the most heartless, thriftless, and indefensible landocracy in the world"; and, if so, whether he would be so good as to give the reference to the evidence which contains the passage referred to?


I am very glad that the hon. Member has put that Question. My attention has been drawn to the misprint in the report of that remark of mine. I need not say that it must have been perfectly incredible to anybody that a man in Mr. Justice Bewley's position could have made any such remark. I think any Gentleman who heard me will be aware that I said, not Mr. Justice Bewley, but the late Mr. Justice Keogh.
