HL Deb 06 June 1842 vol 63 c1238
Lord Kinnaird

asked, what parties were to be entrusted with the distribution of the funds collected by the Queen's letter? If the funds were to be distributed by the Government, it followed that this was only an appeal of the Government to relieve itself.

The Duke of Wellington

rose to order. If the noble Lord had a question to put, he would be kind enough to put it, and not argue upon the consequences of the answer he might receive. He begged to remind the noble Lord that he should conform to the usual practice, and give notice of his intention to ask a question, and then he would have some chance of getting an answer.

Lord Kinnaird

had no idea that there was so much difficulty in getting an answer to a simple question, but he would give notice, that on the earliest day he would repeat the question.

The Duke of Wellington:

If the noble Lord pleased, to-morrow.
