HC Deb 24 May 1866 vol 183 c1197

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether he has received farther Papers from Victoria, relative to the "dead-lock" in that Colony, which he can lay upon the table, together with his Replies to them?


, in reply, said, he should be happy to lay on the table the papers with reference to this subject so far as they at present went. There was published in the newspapers yesterday a telegraphic statement that the difficulty had been brought to a solution, but no such intelligence had reached him. So far as he knew, the Legislative Council having rejected the Tariff Bill, the Ministry resigned, and negotiations had been entered into for forming a Ministry, but they had not been successful. He would lay all the papers he had on the subject on the table.
