§ Mr. LONSDALE
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the inaccuracies in the recent Return issued by his Department of the number of persons who have been made Peers since 1832; can he explain how those inaccuracies arose; and whether it is intended to issue a corrected Return?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
My attention has been called to certain inaccuracies in the Return, and I propose to issue a corrected Return. I understand that the mistakes in the Return—which was not compiled in the Home Office—were mainly due to the fact that a Peer created under one Administration is often not introduced until there is another Administration, or never takes his seat.
