HL Deb 26 June 1806 vol 7 cc833-4
Lord Melville

rose and stated that he came down to the house with the intention of putting a question to a noble lord (Minto) had he seen him in his place, relative to the dispatches which had just been received from India. He was impressed with an opinion that ministers were not fully aware of the nature of those dispatches, and the consequences: which might probably result from them. If he saw the noble lord whom he alluded to, in the house to-morrow, he would then our a question to him, for the purpose of ascertaining what were the ultimate intentions of his majesty's government as to the recal of sir George Barlow. It would depend on the answer he should receive, whether he should, or not, give notice of a motion on this subject on Monday. He did not wish to be considered as now giving any notice of a motion, and repeated, that whether he should do so, would depend on the answer he might receive to his intended question.
