HL Deb 05 October 1841 vol 59 c1114
The Marquess of Normanby

did not know whether it was necessary to trouble their Lordships with a rather extraordinary letter he had received from a Mr. Lacon, who had charged him with having taken steps to suppress the production of certain papers with reference to proceedings that had taken place in the borough of Great Yarmouth. The letter was written in a complete misapprehension of the facts, for their Lordships were aware, that he had not the power to suppress any portion of the documents referred to, as the correspondence was not produced, because the noble Earl who had put the question to him, had not moved for it.

Petition laid on the Table.
