§ THE ATTORNEY GENERAL (Sir R. E. WEBSTER,) Isle of Wight
Tills Bill is to give power to destroy certain documents relating to occurrences between the years 1690 and 1715, in order to remove the congestion in the Record Office, which is now very great. And it is desirable that there should be room for the storage of really valuable documents. The greatest care would be exercised that no valuable historical documents would be destroyed.
§ MR. T. P. O'CONNOR (Liverpool, Scotland Division)
I would like to ask the Attorney General whether any of the records to be destroyed refer to Ireland?
§ MR. J. G. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
I should like to know whether any of these documents refer to Scotland.
§ Bill read second time and committed.
