HC Deb 29 August 1831 vol 6 c773
Mr. George Robinson

was desirous of asking whether the Government was apprized, as he was, that the French government, not content with receiving compensation for the injuries and insults offered them by the Portuguese government, had availed, or were availing themselves of their position to Lisbon to obtain for France Commercial advantages which would be extremely prejudicial to the commerce of this country.

Lord Althorp

replied, that Government had not received any such information as that which the hon. Member had alluded to.
