HC Deb 11 June 1874 vol 219 c1404

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the Government has received information, since a question was asked on this subject, of the intention of the Greek Government to re-establish diplomatic relations with various European Courts, including our own; and, whether the Greek Government has taken, or has intimated its intention of taking, any steps towards the repayment of the large amounts due by it to the British Government and other public creditors in this Country; and, if not, whether any representations have been made to the Greek Government on that subject?


Sir, since this Question was put to me before, Her Majesty's Government have received information that the Greek Government has determined to re-appoint diplomatic representatives to the principal Courts of Europe. With regard to the Greek guaranteed loan, a full account of the present state of that loan is to be found in the Return laid upon the Table of the House within the last few weeks. No representations have been addressed to the Greek Government of late, either upon the subject of that loan, or of the other public debts of Greece.
