asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, If he can afford any further information respecting the claims against the Spanish Government, arising out of the seizure of the "Lark" by the Spanish authorities in Cuba in 1872?


, in reply, said, that the last information was given to the House in the course of last Session. Since then a great deal of information had been obtained from various sources, and owing to that information another case had been submitted to the Law Officers of the Crown. In consequence of the opinion of the Law Officers of the Crown, a communication would be made to the Spanish Government, though what the nature of that communication would be he could not at that moment state.
