HL Deb 04 August 1882 vol 273 c727

My Lords, I rise to correct a misapprehension which has appeared in the papers. Yesterday, in answer to the noble Earl opposite (Earl De La Warr), who asked the number of Europeans who were killed at Alexandria during the first massacre on the 11th of June, I presume that I said —as all the reports agree—that the number was 20. I certainly thought that I said, and I meant to say, 60. That number was on the note that I wrote down before I came here.
