HC Deb 15 August 1901 vol 99 cc910-1
MR. BULL (Hammersmith)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that the guardians of the Hackney Union decline to produce the papers under which they detained Nurse Beatty as a lunatic; and will he, having regard to Section 82 of 32 Vict., c. 5, direct them to do so.


I have no knowledge of the papers referred to, not have I any authority to give directions to the guardians of the poor. I presume the reference is to Section 82 of the Lunacy Act, 1890.
