Longest Sitting?[edit]

My history textbook[1], on the topic of Charles Stewart Parnell and his use of obstructionism in parliament, claims that:

In July 1877, [Parnell] and five others kept the House of Commons sitting for 45 hous non-stop.

Can anyone verify whether this claim is correct, since it would render the record listed on this page as incorrect?
