HC Deb 07 July 1859 vol 154 c795

said, he rose to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has received any despatch relating to recent events at Perugia; and, if so, whether he will lay the same on the table, or state the substance of them to the House?


We have received more than one despatch respecting the late events at Perugia—one from Rome and another from Turin, but the facts therein stated are disputed. It is said by the Foreign Minister in Paris that the events at Perugia have been very much exaggerated, and I have directed further inquiries to be made. I would rather not produce the despatches until the real facts have been ascertained.
