HC Deb 10 August 1876 vol 231 c970

asked the First Lord of the Treasury, Whether the Government will take steps during the Recess, by the publication in the London Gazette (as in the case of the Brussels protocols) or otherwise, to supply such information respecting the war in the East, or negotiations for peace, as would be presented to Parliament during the Session?


I believe it has always been the custom during the Recess to keep the country well informed of important events, either in war or diplomacy; and I see no reason why that custom should be departed from.
