HC Deb 19 July 1867 vol 188 c1723

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If he will lay upon the Table any recent Correspondence connected with the Abyssinian captives? He begged, also, to ask the noble Lord, whether he can hold out to the House any hope of the liberation of these captives?


said, with regard to the Papers he should be quite prepared to give them. In fact, they were now in course of preparation and would be laid on the table in a few days. With regard to the hon. Gentleman's second Question, the House would very shortly have an opportunity of discussing the whole subject, and he would then state his opinion on it.
