HC Deb 29 February 1848 vol 97 c23

I am desirous, Sir, to know whether the Provisional Government established at Paris has made any formal communication of its existence to the Foreign Powers of Europe?


I have received this morning from Lord Norman by a copy of a communication which was made by M. de Lamartine, who is Minister for Foreign Affairs in the Provisional Government—a copy of a communication made by him, I think, to all the foreign Ambassadors at Paris, announcing the formation of the present Provisional Government, and declaring at the same time that the new forms and institutions which have been adopted by France will make no alteration in the position of France in Europe; and that the French Government will display the same loyal and sincere desire of maintaining the most amicable relations with all Powers who may, like France, determine to respect the independence and rights of nations.
