HC Deb 02 June 1865 vol 179 c1209

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether there is any foundation for a statement which has appeared in the Owl newspaper to the effect that a perfect understanding has been arrived at between Her Majesty's Government and the Canadian Delegates; and, if so, when he will be prepared to acquaint the House with the precise terms of the arrangement?


Sir, the conferences between Her Majesty's Government and the Ministers from Canada have not yet been brought to a close, but I hope very soon to be able to report the result of those conferences to the House.
