HC Deb 02 August 1900 vol 87 cc432-3
MR. HERBERT LEWIS (Flint Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to a case in which the right of interment under the provisions of the Burial Laws Amendment Act of 1880 was refused; and whether the removal of a man to a hospital outside his own parish for six months deprives him of such right of interment in the churchyard or cemetery of the parish in which he has lived for ten years, and in which his family continued to reside during his stay at the hospital.


I presume the hon. Member refers to a case about which he wrote to me a few days ago. I am in communication with the incumbent on the subject; but the question as to any right of interment is one which I have no authority to determine.


From whom can I get an opinion on the point?


I know nothing about the case, so I am afraid I cannot answer.
