HC Deb 19 February 1858 vol 148 c1741

I trust the Government will communicate to this House the terms that were proposed to the Chinese Commissioner before Canton was bombarded, together with the answer of the Chinese. I was told on a former occasion that they had not arrived, but, as despatches have since been received, I suppose they must at this time be in the possession of the Government. I wish only to say that I hope they will be placed on the table of this House before the Navy Estimates are considered.

Motion agreed to.

House at rising to adjourn till Monday next.
