Untitled[edit]

The "Later Years" section lifts much of Primrose's biography in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography wholesale. [1] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.211.23.68 (talk) 18:58, 21 July 2011 (UTC) I have modified the main heading on the section on Sport omitting the 'Professional' prefix as this may infer he also financially profited out of playing football as well as his horse racing interests.Cloptonson (talk) 18:22, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Holland House[edit]

3rd Baron Holland died in 1840, before Rosebery was even born! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.188.98.89 (talk) 20:11, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Financed statue of Oliver Cromwell[edit]

I understand that he paid for the statue of Oliver Cromwell in front of the Palace of Westminster. In the Cromwell article, there is a citation, but I think there must be a more authoritative citation.--TGC55 (talk) 16:54, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Non sequiteur[edit]

From the intro section. 'He briefly was in charge of Scottish affairs. This finest performance in office came as chairman of the London County Council in 1889.' What is the connection? Jackiespeel (talk) 21:55, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
