§ MR. W. PRITCHARD MORGAN (Merthyr Tydvil)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether Lord Russell of Killowen stated, in his letter to the Home Office, that his opinion, as head of the criminal justiciary of England, was that Mrs. Maybrick ought to be immediately released, and did his Lordship authorise the Home Secretary to make his statement public; and, whether he will inform the House the precise nature of the communication referred to?
§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
I must refer the hon. Member to the answers which I gave on this subject on July 31st. I have nothing to add to them except that the objections to laying the letter of the Lord Chief Justice on the Table of the House apply equally to my making any statement as to its contents.
