HC Deb 03 February 1832 vol 9 c1274
Mr. Dixon,

thinking that enough had been said about Belgium, would beg leave to ask the noble Lord if there was any prospect of a settlement of the English claims on the Brazilian Government?

Viscount Palmerston

said, that he expected the Commissioners would soon finish their inquiries, and proceed to satisfy the claimants.

Lord Sandon

begged to know, if the amount of the money set apart for the satisfaction of these claims would be sufficient to cover them?

Viscount Palmerston

replied, that though large, it would not be sufficient to discharge all demands; but he entertained no doubt that the Brazilian government, in the spirit in which they had voted the sums already paid over, would agree to a further vote.

The House resolved itself into a Committee of Supply.

Resolutions agreed to, and the House resumed.
