HC Deb 31 May 1866 vol 183 cc1553-4

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether under the "Treaty of Navigation between Her Majesty and the King of Prussia," signed at Gastein the 16th day of August, 1865, it was intended to include the shipping of the territory captured by Prussia and Austria?


said, he must confess that he did not exactly understand his hon. Friend's question; but, concluding that he referred to Schleswig and Holstein he would remind the hon. Member that neither Schleswig nor Holstein had yet been assigned to Austria or Prussia; and that, therefore, the treaty to which he referred must apply to territories already possessed by Austria and Prussia.
