HC Deb 14 February 1901 vol 89 cc57-8

To the Right Honourable the Speaker of the House of Commons.

In the matter of the Petition relating to the last Election of a Member of Parliament for the Borough of Pembroke and Haverfordwest.

We, Sir Charles John Darling and Sir Arthur Moseley Channell, two of the Judges of the King's Bench Division of the High Court of Justice, and two of the Judges for the time being on the Rota for the trial of Election Petitions in England, do hereby certify that Lieutenant-General John Winburn Laurie was duly elected and returned at the said Election.

We report that no corrupt or illegal practice was proved to have been committed by or with the knowledge or consent of either candidate.

That neither candidate was proved guilty by his agents of any corrupt or illegal practice.

That no particular individuals were proved at the trial to have been guilty of corrupt or illegal practices, and consequently no names can be given.

That there was no reason to believe that corrupt or illegal practices had extensively prevailed at the said Election.



29th January, 1901.
