HC Deb 10 April 1876 vol 228 cc1474-5

asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether his attention has been called to the proceedings in regard to the British Church at Stockholm, and in particular to its forcible entry by the Swedish authorities; and, whether he can state the steps which Her Majesty's Government propose to take in the affair?


, in reply, said, the attention of the Government had been called to the matter. It appeared that some disputes had arisen among the congregation respecting the management of the church, and that the Swedish authorities had interfered. Her Majesty's Government had no wish to mix themselves up with the disputes, but had referred the whole subject to the Law Officers of the Crown. As they had not yet received the opinion of the Law Officers, it was undesirable that at present he should say anything further on the subject.


intimated that he would repeat the Question after the Easter Recess.
