Parliamentary Debate On Chief Commissioner James Monro

THE STAR NEWSPAPER AND MR. MONRO.

HC Deb 11 July 1889 vol 338 c133 

§ MR. WHARTON (Yorkshire, Ripon)

I beg to ask the Home Secretary a question of which I have given him private notice—namely, whether his attention has been drawn to a paragraph which appeared in the Star newspaper of July 9th, in which these words occur— It is further asserted that Mr. Monro, Chief Commissioner of Police, has been in Paris daring the past few days on a special mission haying reference to the Land League books, and whether there is any authority for or truth in that assertion?

§ * MR. MATTHEWS

The assertion made in the paragraph is absolutely untrue. Mr. Monro has not been absent from London from the date of the arrival of the Shah.

§ MR. WHARTON

May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether it is not the fact that there is a firm of bankers in Paris of the name of J. Munro & Co., which may possibly have given rise to this extraordinary assertion?

§ * MR. MATTHEWS

I am informed there is a firm of bankers in Paris of that name.

§ MR. SEXTON

Is it not true that Chief Inspector Littlechild has been in Paris during the last few days on the mission in question?
