HC Deb 09 June 1870 vol 201 c1768

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether there is any objection to lay upon the Table of the House, Copies of any Despatches which have been received at the Foreign Office since the year 1861, from Her Majesty's Representatives at the Court of Athens, and from the Courts of France and Russia, pointing out how ill-suited the existing Constitution is to the Greek Nation?


said, in reply, that some communications of the nature referred to by his hon. Friend had reached the Foreign Office; but they were, however, of a confidential character, and the Government thought that they ought not to be laid before Parliament.
