HC Deb 18 May 1863 vol 170 c1837

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Has the Brazilian Minister demanded his passports, or made any communication to Her Majesty's Government to the effect that he has instructions which may require him to suspend Diplomatic Relations between England and Brazil; is any correspondence pending; and will it be laid upon the table of the House when complete?


said, in reply, that the only answer he could give to the hon. Gentleman's question was that the correspondence between Her Majesty' Government and the Brazilian Minister was still pending, and therefore it would be highly inconvenient to lay it at present upon the table of the House.
