HC Deb 05 March 1867 vol 185 c1339

said, he rose to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, When he will lay upon the table the Correspondence between the Secretary of State and the Governor General of Canada, as also with other persons in the colony, regarding the extradition of M. Lamirande?


Sir, the Papers containing the Colonial Correspondence on the subject have been ready for some time for presentation, and there is no wish whatever to delay their production; but it is thought desirable that they should appear at the same time as the Foreign Office Correspondence with the French Government on the same subject, as the two elucidate each other. We are waiting for an answer from the French Government, and when it is given the correspondence will appear.


Perhaps I may be allowed to say that we have received the communication which I said a few nights ago we were waiting for, and the papers will be prepared for presentation in a short time.
