HC Deb 08 June 1863 vol 171 c516

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether, considering the statements that have lately been made of the inoffensive conduct of the Garrison of Belgrade in former years, the Government will continue to refuse the production of the Papers and Correspondence relating to the serious attack made upon the late Mr. Fonblanque, our Consul General in Servia, by a soldier of the Turkish Garrison, in the year 1858?


in reply, said, that the attack to which the hon. Member referred, was not the act of the Turkish Garrison, but of a single soldier; and as that soldier had been punished for it, and every redress offered, he saw no advantage in giving the Papers in question.
