HC Deb 31 May 1866 vol 183 c1552

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether it is true that the Chilean Minister has demanded his passport; and, if so, what are the grounds for this rupture of friendly relations with that Government?


Sir, the Chilean Minister has not asked for his passport; he has delivered letters of recall, but no reasons are assigned for that recall. From despatches received only yesterday from Chile, there is no reason to fear that there will be any interruption of the friendly relations between the two countries.
