HC Deb 14 February 1870 vol 199 c240

said, he would beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If the Government of the United States of America has offered to re-open negotiations for a settlement of the "Alabama" difficulties; if so, whether such negotiations are to be conducted in London or Washington?


, in reply, said, the Government of the United States had not made an offer to re-open negotiations on the Alabama claims. Should negotiations on this subject be renewed, they would be so at Washington; but he begged leave to refer his hon. Friend to the Papers that day distributed to hon. Members on this subject, as they contained the fullest and latest information relating to his Question.
