Royal Commission on Capital Punishment was chaired by the Duke of
Richmond. It worked from 1864 to 1866 and was in disagreement on
abolition. The Commission did not come to agreement on abolition.
On most matters, it offered a range of options for legislation. The
exception was unanimity of the need for a law to stop public
executions and to regulate executions within prisons. A
declaration, drafted by Stephen Lushington, was included in the
Report: " We] . . . are not prepared to agree to the Resolution
respecting private executions." Signed by Stephen Lushington, Wm
Ewart, Charles Neate, J Moncreiff, John Bright. This is presumably
because they strongly favoured abolition.
