He did not think they would supply him with the information he desired, but he had no objection to move for them, and if the result were not satisfactory he would make his inquiry of Her Majesty's Government again. He therefore begged leave to move, in terms of his notice, an Address for— Copies of Letters addressed by the Secretary of State for the Home Department to Chairmen of Quarter Sessions of Counties and Mayors of Boroughs: And, Of Correspondence with the Inspectors of Prisons on the subject of carrying into effect the Provisions of the Prisons Act, 1866."—(The Earl of Carnarvon.)

Motion agreed to.
