HC Deb 22 March 1830 vol 23 cc712-3
The Chancellor of the Exchequer

moved the Order of the Day for the House going into a Committee of Supply.

Lord John Russell

would take that opportunity to inquire whether the House might shortly expect to have laid before it the papers relative to the affairs of Greece, mentioned in the Speech from the Throne at the opening of the Session.

Mr. Peel

was not prepared at the mo- ment to give an answer to the question; but if the noble Lord supposed that these papers were in preparation at the time that the communication was made from the Throne, he laboured under an erroneous impression. His Majesty merely stated in the Speech from the Throne that he "hoped at an early period to be enabled to lay before Parliament the particulars of the arrangement" in question.

Lord John Russell

could not understand why these papers had not been in preparation before that time.
