THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
I wish, Sir, to make a short explanation of a statement made, on my authority, by my right hon. Friend at the head of the Government, in reference to the cases for contempt of Court. My right hon. Friend was speaking from information which I had placed at his disposal, and in the course of his statement he said that the Attorney General had not been concerned in any of the cases connected with Members of this House. At the time I furnished him with that infor- 1174 mation I was not aware that Mr. Carter, whom I brought before the Queen's Bench at the direction of the Lord Chief Justice, was the hon. Member for Leeds. I was thinking only of the hon. Member for Peterborough (Mr. Whalley) and the hon. Member for Guildford (Mr. Onslow).
